I am only 28 but I have hooded eyelids. They are starting to hang over my eyelashes now. However, I am not sure I want surgery. Do you know of any other options for me?
Excess skin in the upper eyelids can lead to obstructed vision and can be hereditary or due to ageing. The only solution is surgical, with removal of the excess skin. The procedure removes the skin at the level of the upper eyelid crease so the scar sits in the natural crease and is hidden. The result of surgery is to take the weight off the upper eyelid, which results in the eyelid lifting and appearing more open, with reduction in the appearance of looking tired and the hooded appearance.
