Heavy upper eyelid or brow ridge? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 3
Hello and thank you for your question.
Based on your photos you do appear to have some excess upper eyelid skin. As far as your brow position is concerned, it appears to be in a good position, however a physical exam would be needed to fully assess this. Assuming your brow is in good position, performing an upper eyelid blepharoplasty would remove the excess skin +/- muscle and create a rejuvenated, more refreshed appearance. This surgery can be performed by most surgeons under local anesthesia in an office based setting in about an hour. To truly assess whether or not you are a good candidate for this, make sure to seek a consultation with a plastic surgeon who has experience in this area.

Thank you for sharing your question and photograph. You have extra skin on the upper eyelids ( dermatochalasis) which can be easily improved with blepharoplasty. See an experienced oculoplastic surgeon for comprehensive evaluation and discussion of treatment plans.
From the pictures you provided it does appear that you have some excess upper eyelid skin. Your brows seem to be in good position so I would suggest a upper eyelid blepharoplasty for you. The blepharoplasty procedure is designed to remove excess skin and bagginess to achieve a youthful appearance.
