Heavy Eyelids and Botox
Botox is a great injection for the forehead area and around the eyes to treat Crow's feet. However, if you have excess skin in the upper lids, then Botox will make them appear heavy. I would recommend consulting with a board certified plastic surgeon about a surgical option.
In order to open your eyes you would benefit from a blepharoplasty. This is a common eyelid surgery to remove excess skin and suborbital fat. However, Botox can be used to temporarily raise your eyebrow. It would be best to consult a board-certified plastic surgeon to learn about your option. Best regards.
Browlift with Botox and Juvederm
Juvederm is a hyaluronic filler that can also be used to create a browlift by being placed underneath the brows. In some situations, hyaluronic fillers can also be used directly in the mid-forehead region to lift as well. These types of fillers tend to last about a year in the brow and forehead areas. These treatments should only be performed by the most experienced physician injectors in order to achieve safe, effective and natural looking results.
Beyond Botox and Juvederm, and if desiring non-surgical treatment, there is also a focused ultrasound treatment called Ultherapy that is approved specifically and uniquely for browlift but creating new collagen in the forehead region. One treatment usually provides results that begin to appear 2-4 months later and last 1-2 years. Again, best to seek a consultation with an experienced provider to see if this is right for you.
Botox browlift raises eyelids too.
Thanks for sharing your photos.
Yes, you do have heavy eyelids and they can be enhanced with a bilateral upper eyelid blepharoplasty, ie. upper eyelid lift.
Natural and youthful eyebrows in women are typically just above to 1 centimeter above the bony ridge of the orbit with the peak of the arch in the lateral third of the brow.
The art and science of Botox requires the injector to understand the dynamics of brow elevation and arch formation. This may also lift the upper eyelid upward so it does not fall fully on the eyelash.
Consult with a talented and skillful Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, ENT Facial Surgeon or Dermatologist who understands the anatomy and dynamics of facial expression to help you achieve your goals.
I wish you well.
