Drooping eyelids can affect one or both eyes. Also known as ptosis or blepharoptosis, this is a condition where the upper eyelid begins to sag. This is usually caused by our muscles slackening and our skin losing its elasticity with age.
Often, we see clients at our Maldon clinic whose self-confidence is impacted by the appearance of their drooping eyelids. This drooping can sometimes be so severe that it can even obscure vision.
Drooping eyelids usually develop over a long period of time. If ptosis has developed over a period of days or even hours, you should see your doctor immediately, as this could be a sign of a serious medical problem.
Treatment for droopy upper eyelids in Maldon
Here at Aesthetics of Essex, we provide two types of treatment for drooping eyelids.
The first of these is blepharoplasty surgery, and the second option is known as Plexr, which is less invasive.
Here’s some information about each of these to help you make an informed decision when looking for treatment for drooping eyelids in Maldon
Eyelid reduction surgery in Maldon
Blepharoplasty surgery is the medical term for eyelid reduction surgery. Also known as an eye lift, this surgery is designed to remove any excess skin from the eyelids.
Significant folds, creases, and droopy eyelids can not only make you look older but can also limit your peripheral field of vision. The advanced eye lift procedure that we perform regularly at our Maldon clinic reduces these effects.
Eyelid reduction surgery involves tiny incisions being made along the natural crease of your eyelid by our skilled plastic surgeon. Any excess fat or muscle will be removed, and the incision will be closed. Any trace of the incision will be hidden in the fold of the eyelid.
If you are suffering with excess skin and fat gathering above and below the eyelids, blepharoplasty surgery could be the right choice for you. Our team are highly qualified and experienced in eyelid reduction surgery, and can perform the procedure safely.

Non-surgical treatment for drooping eyelids in Maldon
If your drooping eyelids are less severe, or you just don’t fancy going under the knife, you may be interested in our non-surgical treatment for drooping eyelids in Maldon. Plexr (also known as FELC Nano Plasma) is an innovative non-invasive treatment, which offers our Maldon clients an alternative approach to cosmetic surgery.
A firm favourite with clients of Aesthetics of Essex, this state-of-the-art technology causes the skin to instantly contract and tighten. It does this using plasma, which is formed when atmospheric gases are ionised.
The plasma device produces a narrow beam, which causes immediate vaporisation of the skin in the area. It takes only around 30 minutes, and literally changes the skin cells from solid to gas.
There’s no need for a general anaesthetic when you choose to have Plexr eyelid treatment in Maldon, as there will be no cutting of the skin (and therefore no scarring afterwards).
Other areas that benefit from the Plexr treatment are fine lines on the upper lip or elsewhere on the face.
