Also Know, what does Dermatochalasis mean? 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.
Keeping this in consideration, what is the difference between Dermatochalasis and Blepharochalasis?
More often blepharochalasis refers to the stretching of the skin of the eyelids associated with aging. A more accurate term for involutional loosening of the eyelid skin is dermatochalasis. The puffiness of fat that is either excessive or protruding through a lax septum is steatoblepharon.
What is an eye job?
Eyelid surgery (also called an eye lift or blepharoplasty), reduces bagginess from lower eyelids and removes excess skin from the upper eyelids. This surgery is usually done for cosmetic reasons. It's also an effective way to improve sight in older people whose sagging upper eyelids get in the way of their vision.
