Thick Eyelid Solution
Thanks for your post. It is a common problem and easily rectified.
Blepharoplasty also known as eyelid lift, eyelid surgery, eye bag removal and eyelid reshaping are cosmetic surgery procedures to remove excess loose skin of the upper and/or lower eyelid with or without fat removal or reshaping. The aim is for a fresher and more youthful appearance of the eyes. Upper lid blepharoplasty is a very common cosmetic surgery procedure in the UK.
You would need to have a thorough consultation to work through what options are best for you. Good Luck with your research.

How can I correct very thick eyelids through surgery?
If your eyelids are heavy because of excess skin or a heavy brow, an upper blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) or possibly a brow lift would help this. To determine the better option a different set of photos or an in person evaluation would be needed. There is another issue which can lead to heavy eyelids. This is called ptosis which means a droopy eyelid. There are many causes for this, but if ptosis is the problem, that makes the treatment a little more complicated.
What I would recommend is an in person consultation with a facial plastic surgeon. This way an in person analysis can be performed and determined what is the best treatment for you based on your anatomy.
I hope this helps and good luck.
