There is a thin membrane that separates the adipose tissue from the lower eyelids.This membrane, which acts as a support, loosens over time and cannot carry the weight of the adipose tissue and this causes the displacement of tissues, which we call bagging.With the excessive use of mimic muscles, the first wrinkles occur here.As a result of all these negative effects, the face looks older and tired.It is possible to get rid of this appearance with a surgical operation to be applied to the eyelid and its surroundings.
