Anyone tried anything noninvasive that works?

My mum, who's 72 visited her GP for something unrelated and he noticed she was struggling to see her little diary from under her brows. One eye is worse than the other but....they've referred her to the hospital to have an eye brow lift, to alleviate the sag. I couldn't believe it when she told me! She's been like that for years.

How bad are yours? You never k ow! But, I think they have to seriously affect your vision. They're doing both of hers, so they'll be even though. I'm dead p,eased for her!

Hmmm.... As I thought. Maybe there's not much can be done beyond the surgeon's knife!

Sorry, my anecdotal story wasn't really the answer you were looking for smile

If it is excess skin... then an upper eyelid surgery is the only option. It is not as daunting as it sounds though...takes about an hour.

Cedge, my mum's been told she can have a local anaesthetic and will be in and out in a couple of hours!

That seems pretty good smile

My SiL got her saggy lids done on the NHS.

When mine threaten to get saggy I'm not sure wether to get excited or not, coz I'd love an eye lift.

Heavy eyelids run in the family, my mum and all of my aunties have them. I think surgery is the only real answer tbh. But as a PP said, it's done under local anaesthetic these days and it's a half a day maximum in hospital. I've kind of resigned myself to the fact that I'll want it done at some point.

I am looking at getting this done too, does anyone have a rough idea of prices? I feel like a bulldog with little eyes peeping out underneath the folds.

Now I've hit my 40s I'm noticing more and more parts of my body that I'm not happy with. My eyelids aren't terrible, I can just see them heading south IYGWIM. Not sure I'd be able to have surgery as have a couple of medical conditions (diabetes, thyroid) which some surgeons won't touch with a barge poll. Ridiculous if you ask me as I am we'll controlled and have recovered well from 2 csections. Hmph sad

This stuff works a treat, for a temporary effect
