Good morning, I have been considering a brow lift to improve the appearance of what appears to be my eyelids dropping in the outside corners (hope that makes sense!); originally I thought an eye lid ‘lift’ was needed but a cosmetic surgeon suggested that a brow lift would be more suitable. I am wondering if dermal fillers may be a good option for me? I am 55 years old and I can send a photo if that would assist? IKind regards and thanks, Ann.
Dermal fillers can be used to fill the inside portion of the upper eyelid to make the outer drooping part seem relatively less droopy. However, this can only be performed to a degree, and in some cases a surgical correction will be necessary. This may involve a removal of some skin of the upper lid (blepharoplasty), and possibly a brow lift.
