Dermatochalasis is a medical condition, defined as an excess of skin in the upper or lower eyelid, also known as “baggy eyes.” It may be either an acquired or a congenital condition. It is generally treated with blepharoplasty.
Treatment can be found at Palm Beach Eye Center:
If dermatochalasis is severe enough to obstruct the peripheral or superior visual fields, then it may be treated with a surgical procedure called blepharoplasty. In blepharoplasty surgery, excess skin, muscle and fat are removed. While the improvement of vision is an indication for blepharoplasty on the superior eyelid, if the visual fields are not obstructed, it may be performed for cosmetic reasons. In general, blepharoplasty of the inferior eyelid is considered cosmetic, as dermatochalasis in the lower eyelid does not interfere with vision.
