Those who have heavy eyelids or droopy eyelids may often be mistaken for being tired or exhausted, and as the whole face depresses as a consequence, it is understandable why this condition is a problem for many patients.
Heavy eyelids affect people of all ages, but can become more problematic over time. Some may notice droppy eyelids as early as their late twenties, and may wish to seek a preventative treatment to help reduce the appearance of heavy lids.
Droopy eyelid treatment is not always purely for aesthetic purposes; Upper eyelid excess skin and fat can create heavy eyelids, which can sometimes block the upper field of vision.
Depending on the severity of your indications, a brow lift with Botox injections may help alleviate some of the weight that is pulling down onto your upper eyelid. A Botox brow lift works by relaxing the muscle on a temporary basis, preventing them from over-contracting, deepening facial lines and also pulling down on the skin. Just a few precise injections can create a subtle lifting result and lighten the load on your upper lid.
A blepharoplasty procedure is typically a day case surgical option for managing heavy eyelids. It is a proven and safe treatment that provides dramatic results. The surgery is performed under local anaesthetic, so you will be able to resume your usual activities after the procedure, without the side effects of a general anaesthetic. Our top surgeon, Mr. Nick Percival ensures the scars are within the crease of the lid so that recovery is quick and signs of surgery are discrete.
A surgical brow lift can also give impressive results with lasting effect. Brow lifts can help with low or asymmetric brows, and creases on the bridge of the nose. Mr. Nick Percival specialises in facial surgery and carries out surgery at our Channel Island locations. He is an acclaimed plastic surgeon who has an extensive background in reconstructive work. With bruising lasting about 7-14 days, it is a desirable option for many.
