droopy eyelids

Besides making you appear tired or older, drooping eyelids can obscure your vision and create difficulty in wearing glasses.

 

If you are concerned about drooping eyelids, also known as ptosis, you may be helped by an operation known as blepharoplasty. Cases where vision is obscured may be treated within the NHS, for the vast majority of cases, blepharoplasty is treated as cosmetic eyelid surgery and must be undertaken privately.

 

*The patient in the images shown above has had both upper and lower blepharoplasty ( fat removal from eyelids and bags under the eyes)

 

Your eyes are framed by their lids and brows. Over time, the eyelids and even the eyebrows can become 'droopy' or 'baggy' as the skin stretches, muscles weaken and fat pockets bulge. This commonly occurs with age, but may also have an hereditary element.
