Botox can be injected to provide a minimal lift to the brow which could possibly lift the the upper lid a small amount. In your case, it appears you have significant upper lid hooding and would greatly benefit from an upper lid blepharoplasty. This can be done as an outpatient procedure with minimal down time.
Botox for hooded eyelids?
Botox can be used to provide a small amount of lift to the lateral portion of the brow; this may have a minimal effect on lifting of the upper eyelids themselves. However, in patients with significant hooding, surgical (Blepharoplasty) or nonsurgical interventions (tightening devices +/- filler) will likely be necessary.
Thanks for your question. Absolutely, Botox can be used to achieve a bit of lifting of your brows that should improve the hooding. The effect can be subtle. For an example, check out my before and afters of Botox. The effect should last about 3 months. You'll need to make sure you go to someone who is experienced in Botox. Ultimately you may want to consider an eyelid lift to help get rid of some of the extra skin, but Botox would be a good place to start. Good luck!
Botox can definitely help with some hooding and giving you a slight brow lift. This is an experienced Botox injection and please consult an expert with this procedure. Best, Dr. Green
Botox can be placed so that it does give you some brow lift. The question then becomes will it be enough to make you happy. The good thing is that there is no down time and you should see the effects within 5-7 days and it is less expensive than eyelid surgery. I do think that you will need upper lid (blepharoplasty) surgery at some point to give you a more permanent fix.
Thank you for your question and the photos.
Botox can help to lift the brow thus help reduce the heaviness of your upper eyelids. To what extent it helps is difficult to say, but it is worth trying if you do not want to have anything invasive at the moment.
Botox expertly placed below the eyebrow will give you an eyebrow lift and improve the hooded eyelid.
However, you should consider seeing a plastic surgeon for upper eyelid belpharoplasty to get rid of that excess skin. It will significantly enhance your features.
Eyelid improvement with botox
Botox can improve the eyebrow position, thus reducing some of the hooding. With your degree of brow ptosis and hooding, it is unlikely that you will get enough elevation/improvement to satisfy your desires. It may be worth having a treatment to see your degree of improvement with Botox
Botox for hooded/drooping eyelids
Botox can be used to try and lift a hooded or drooping upper eyelid. In the process of doing so, it would also cause the eyebrow to raise to some extent. The change would only be in a matter of millimeters, but it can help in some people. It would be a fairly simple treatment to try and it would wear off after several months.
Surgery May Be Better for You
Although BOTOX can be used to make
minor improvements around the eyes, it takes an extremely experienced injector
to ensure that no unwanted effects, such as drooping, occur. In your case,
however, I see some significant hooding. In order to get the best results, I
think that surgery may be your best bet. I understand your reticence, but keep
in mind that eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure. The incisions are
typically made within the natural creases of the eyelid, so any scarring is
extremely discreet. In any case, please see a board-certified plastic surgeon
to ensure the best results. Good luck with your decision.
