    Need desperate help, how would you code for hooding of the eyelids?

  2. Default
    Aging causes your skin to lose its elasticity. When this occurs in the upper eyelid, it is called dermatochalasis or hooding. Hooding in the upper eyelid ranges from a mild loss of the normal eyelid fold to extensive sagging.

    Hope it helps...
