I am wondering if Botox/Juvederm can help me raise my eyebrows to eliminate the sagging of my upper eyelids?

Dr. Dean Kane Q & A close up eye Q. I am wondering if Botox/Juvederm can help me raise my eyebrows to eliminate the sagging of my upper eyelids? I went to a consultation and the doctor told me that because my eyelid sagging is genetic, Botox wouldn’t be able to fix the problem and that I would have to turn to surgery for that. I can’t afford surgery so I am wondering if this doctor was right in his findings. My upper eyelids are definitely saggy and it is genetic, but I am hoping there is some way other than surgery to fix this. A. ​Thanks for sharing your photos. ​ ​Yes, you do have heavy eyelids and they can be enhanced with a bilateral upper eyelid blepharoplasty, ie. upper eyelid lift. ​ ​Natural and youthful eyebrows in women are typically just above to 1 centimeter above the bony ridge of the orbit with the peak of the arch in the lateral third of the brow. ​ ​The art and science of Botox requires the injector to understand the dynamics of brow elevation and arch formation. This may also lift the upper eyelid upward so it does not fall fully on the eyelash. ​ ​Consult with a talented and skillful Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, ENT Facial Surgeon or Dermatologist who understands the anatomy and dynamics of facial expression to help you achieve your goals. ​ ​I wish you well.
