Importance of the glances in social life is undeniable. Our face is in the center of our expression. It shows whether we are sad, happy or gloomy. Sometimes due to aging and sometimes due to anatomical causes, our impression might appear more exhausted and sad than it really is.

When we face the mirror, our glance catches up with our expression, we sometimes see a problem with either our upper or lower eyelid or the wrinkles that circle them. But it is a common mistake to attribute the problem with a single cause. Level of beauty of a glance is determined by many factors. Upper eyelid can’t be examined without the lower eyelid or eyebrows, lower eyelid’s situation is not independent from the cheek area.

The anatomical causes of aging doesn’t affect only one area. There are fat pockets on both our upper and lower areas of our eye sockets. While eye socket applies pressure on the lower part, this isn’t the case on the upper part. Partly due to anatomy, problems in the upper eyelid show themselves as folding while lower eyelids get a baggy look. But processes and reasons that cause the muscles around our eyes to weaken are the same; be it gravity or anatomy.

When lowering of eyebrows and eye area wrinkles get added to these, a more tired look appears. While this causes deforms our eyelids, they also cause our eyebrows to go lower. This alone is the cause for a more tired look. This all can occur in the early ages without aging.

Depending on our aesthetic view, the outer tear duct being higher than the inner one makes a more alluring eye look. Otherwise, it creates a tired look. This problem can be fixed by levitating the outer tear duct with a small operation.

As with all subjects of plastic surgery, solution of the problem is tied to the visibility of the problem.
