Can These Eyedrops Lift Sagging Eyes?

For the most part, blepharoplasty, aka eye surgery, is the best solution to lift sagging, fatigued eyelids back to where they belong and give the eyes a more open look. For swollen, puffy-looking under-eye bags, which can be caused by fat that has shifted over time, lower blepharoplasty works wonders to reposition the fat and tighten up loose skin. On the upper eyelids, upper blepharoplasty corrects heavy upper lids that have lost their crease by reinstating support to the lids.

While surgery isn’t going anywhere, some doctors, like New York oculoplastic surgeon James R. Gordon, MD, are able to instantly lift over-hanging eyelids without a scalpel using an eye drop, which has been used for years to treat glaucoma.

While the eyelift drops, aptly called Drop N' Lift, only garner results for one day (you need to re-administer the drops daily to keep up the results), Dr. Gordon says this is a quick fix for patients who want instant gratification without the pain, downtime and cost of surgery. It is also a great option for those whose condition is not severe enough for surgical interventions, but want immediate correction.

You can also use the eyelift drops as a way to see what you could look like should you decide to have your eyes done.
