loose skin on right eye lid

I'm 44 years old and for a many years I've always had loose skin on my eyelid, my mother had this problem also, I make it a habit not to eat or drink at night because when I wake up in the morning my eyelid is always swollen down over my eyelashes.  This problem has become more prominent in the past year, I know that when my mother was alive her eye was always in a bad way.  Wondering if this is anything that can be fixed because all the indicators show that it's only going to get worse and I'm already having twitching in the eyelid several times a day.

Dear shorty43,

I would recommend that you seek the care of an eyeMD specializing in oculo-plastic surgery to determine whether an eyelid lift might be of some help.
