Saggy eyelids happen for many reasons, though the most common one is aging. Patients can experience sagging on their upper or lower lids, and sometimes both. This can cause distress and sometimes even hinder a patient’s vision in severe cases. Naturally, patients tend to wonder, “What is the best treatment for saggy eyelids?”
First off, the best treatment will depend on two main factors: the severity of the sagging and the individual patient. When a patient is just beginning to see sagging, certain non-surgical therapies may help prevent worsened sagging. This can sometimes include BOTOX, dermal fillers under the eyes or in the cheeks, and medical grade skincare.
In most cases of sagging eyelids, patients will find the best results from blepharoplasty surgery. The surgery can address either set of eyelids (upper or lower) or correct sagging of both. Blepharoplasty removes the extra, sagging skin and tightens the structures under the eyes. This usually provides the best and longest lasting correction of saggy eyelids.
