Droopy Eyelids, or Ptosis, refers to eyelids that tend to descend to the point that they block the pupil and effect peripheral vision. This may occur as a result of aging, eyelid surgery, trauma, or genetics. Another common cause is Pseudoptosis, which the artificial appearance of droopy eyelids actually caused by excess of skin or fat in the upper eyelids.
How Does it Work?
Your physician will determine the exact nature of your drooped eyelids as different surgical techniques are required for different types of eyelid droop. Ptosis surgery corrects the sagging eyelid by tightening or removing some material to correct the ptosis. After ptosis correction, the upper eyelid is lifted so vision is no longer impaired. The eyelids look younger with tighter skin, more open appearance, better eyelash appearance, and fewer visual problems.
