I doubt it man. How much fat can your eyelid have?

The only thing the internet is going to do for you with regards to this problem is give you 100 ways to get really stressed out about a particular symptom, 99 of which aren't actually applicable.

You should, like, totally see a doctor, and stuff. And stop using the internet to diagnose yourself.

I guess creams and the like won't do anything.

Thanks!

Although you said you are going to a doctor, you should go to a doctor as soon as possible. If this is something like Bell's Palsy, it can be permanent, but I just read a study saying that early treatment (within the first few days, I believe) is associated with better outcomes.

As I mentioned, it appears to be more of the eyebrow - not the eyelid. You wouldn't notice it if you looked at me, but if I look in the mirror I can tell. So until I find out from a doctor that it is serious - it just appears to be a "cosmetic" issue that I am concerned about.

I am 36 and apparently drooping brows/eyelid is pretty common among men starting at the age more so than women. I can't imagine it to be Bell's Palsy - because it's not affecting any other part of my face and the drooping right now is minimal. But I am going to a doctor this week.

Jeeze man. At your age you are lucky the only thing drooping is your eyebrow! Wait 'til it spreads!

You mean this, don't you? At least it's not a health threat.

I had Bell's Palsy as a teenager. I didn't have any prodromal symptoms or evidence of viral infection before it developed. I initially noticed that I couldn't close one of my eyelids tightly. My mother took me to the ophthalmologist thinking it was some problem with my eye. He told me to grit my teeth; it was then apparent that the entire side of my face was affected. It gradually worsened then finally resolved after several months.

I'll just second what's been said about the importance of seeing a physician. It could be natural aging, it could be something more, but a doctor is the one to make that call. I will say, though, that I experienced something similiar. I had a ptosis in my left eye due to injury at birth (doctor misused forceps during delivery) that was pretty severe, but it was 80% correctable via surgery. Either way, good luck at the Dr.'s, and I hope it's nothing serious.
