Is blepharoplasty the only solution for droopy eyes? I am 66 years old, from Lakeway, and the skin over my eyes droops down too far. Aren’t there any non-invasive techniques that could tighten up the skin in this area?
For most individuals a blepharoplasty is the procedure of choice for droopy eyes. Some patients however have an additional problem of the eyelid itself being depressed and they need a procedure called ptosis surgery which involves shortening of the upper eyelid muscle. On occasion, injectable fillers may be used to improve the appearance of the eyelid without surgery.
