ThermiSmooth, filler, and blepharoplasty for sagging upper eyelid skin
If the upper eyelids are sagging, it may be from a forehead that has sagged or the eyebrows, or both. Other patients have eyelids that lower as a result of the muscle and tendon of the upper eyelid and that requires different surgery than mere skin removal. Standard blepharoplasty surgical removal of sagging upper eyelid skin results in natural looking and younger eyelids. It is the most effective way of addressing this concern. But if my patients absolutely don't want surgery, there are a few things that can be done to help lift the upper eyelids slightly. ThermiSmooth or ThermiTight radiofrequency or Ultherapy ultrasound tightening of the forehead, along with off-label use of hyaluronic acid filler under the outer eyebrow and Fraxel Repair resurfacing of the preseptal upper eyelid skin, and Botox treatment of the glabellar forehead and outer eyebrows can all help lift the upper eyelid, but not to the same extent as a blepharoplasty.
There is always hope!
