Is there an alternative to surgery for droopy eyelids?

With regards to rejuvenation of the upper and lower eyelids, there are no alternatives to surgery. In the lower eyelids, fractionated laser can achieve a modest amount of rejuvenation. However, if there are bags or fat pockets of the lower eyelids, then even lasers have no effect. Ultimately, improving upper or lower eyelids requires surgical intervention.
