Droopy or puffy eyelids can make you appear older than you are. They can also interfere with your field of vision. There are a variety of temporary and permanent ways to fix your sagging eyelids. These droopy eyelid treatments range from injectables to cosmetic surgery. Various health conditions or diseases, eye injuries or the aging process can all lead to baggy eyelids. The top three ways to treat this common problem include:
Blepharoplasty—or eyelid lift—is the most effective way to permanently get rid of excess hanging skin on your upper eyelids. This cosmetic surgery is performed to remove the skin drooping over the crease of your eyelid or bulging over your eyelashes. A blepharoplasty can also help under-eye bags and sagging lower eyelids. If you’re only looking to correct your aging upper eyelid, then our cosmetic surgeon may suggest upper eyelid rejuvenation.
2. Brow Lift
Your eyelids may be sagging due to the skin beneath your brows pushing downward. This procedure raises your eyebrows and evens out the skin around your eyes to get rid of frown lines, while also lifting the eyelids. Many of our patients in Manhattan choose to have both an eyelid lift and a brow lift to get the best results possible.
Injectables such as BOTOX® Cosmetic can temporarily improve the appearance of your droopy eyelids. BOTOX® Cosmetic can be injected into the skin around your brow to elevate your eyelids. Dermal fillers can also be used to help with bags under your eyes. This is the least invasive option, but it does need to be repeated in order to keep your results.
