Droopy Eyelid Correction
Ptosis, or a droopy upper eyelid, can have an enormous impact on the form and function of the eyes. The droop can make a person look perpetually tired or sad, even when they feel happy and energetic. The sagging of the upper lid is also associated with aging, so those with this condition can look older. Droopy eyelid correction, or ptosis repair surgery, can help improve the appearance of the eye and address possible vision problems that are caused by this condition.
Dr. Rousso offers correction of ptosis or droopy upper eyelids for our patients. This surgery can be more complicated than an upper eyelid lift, especially if the vision of the eye is affected. Dr. Rousso’s extensive knowledge and experience in facial cosmetic and reconstruction surgery creates the balance of beauty and function that is required for this delicate procedure.
Ptosis Repair Surgery
Ptosis can occur at any age and for assorted reasons. Some children are born with congenital ptosis, while adults can acquire ptosis unexpectedly or through the aging process. Regardless of the cause, the effects can diminish the beauty and expressiveness of the eyes and face and impact the vision. Those with vision issues from ptosis can find themselves raising their eyebrows to see better, often causing formation of brow lines. Ptosis repair surgery can transform the upper eyelid, opening the eye for aesthetic and functional purposes.
If you have people constantly asking if you are tired or sad due to a droopy upper eyelid or you look older or have vision issues due to ptosis, plastic surgery can be an option for fixing these issues.
