Droopy eyebrows, medically known as ptosis, can result in problems with vision. The condition often impacts the upper eyelid as well as the brows. Men and women often feel it makes them look tired or cross and this can still greatly reduce confidence and self-esteem.
What causes droopy eyebrows?
Droopy eyebrows are usually caused with age. As the muscles in the face weaken, it can cause the eyebrows to gradually lower. Sometimes they can also be caused by other conditions such as cancer, facial nerve weakness, and trauma.
Sagging brows or wrinkled eyelids?
To correct droopiness around the eyes, it is important to determine the true cause. Is it sagging brows or wrinkled eyelids? Wrinkling and drooping on the upper eyelids can be greatly improved with surgical intervention. However, if it is sagging brows you are looking to treat, a treatment that lifts the brow would also open the eye area and improve wrinkling on the eyelids.
In some cases, both wrinkled eyelids and sagging brows can be treated with a combination of procedures. The team will assess the cause of skin ptosis to see which treatment or combination will produce the best results.
ASSOCIATED PROCEDURES: Thread Lift, Ultherapy, Blepharoplasty
TREATMENT OPTION: BLEPHAROPLASTY
Eyelid surgery (technically called blepharoplasty) is a procedure to remove sagging, drooping skin on the upper lids. Blepharoplasty can be done alone or in conjunction with other facial surgery procedures such as a facelift or a brow lift.Discover our blepharoplasty procedures
TREATMENT OPTION: ULTHERAPY
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure which has been FDA-cleared. We use this treatment at our London clinic to lift skin on the neck and jowls. It’s also highly effective as a non-surgical brow lift.Discover our Ultherapy treatments
TREATMENT OPTION: THREAD LIFT
Facial ageing such as loss of definition along the jawline, sagging in the midface, drooping in the brow or eye area or the appearance of a double chin, can all be greatly improved by facial threads, also known as a thread lift.
The thread lift can be the perfect solution for those that are just noticing these visible signs of ageing or are unsure or unable to undergo more invasive facial rejuvenation surgery at this time.Discover our thread lift treatments
