Ptosis (Droopy Eyelid) Repair Surgery
When the upper eyelid droops, it gives the eyes and face a tired, sleepy appearance. It can also make the eyes look older. Droopy eyes are more common among older individuals. Ptosis is a condition that can cause the upper eyelid to droop or close slightly, changing the form and function of the eyes. At LM Medical NYC, we offer ptosis or droopy eyelid repair surgery at our state-of-the-art facility in Manhattan.
Ptosis is a condition that affects the function of the upper eyelid. The upper eyelid may not open completely, causing a droopy, sleepy appearance. In some cases, ptosis can impact vision, reducing the scope of eyesight. Ptosis can affect people of any age, even children, but it is more common as a side effect of aging. Ptosis repair surgery restores the proper function of the upper eyelid and improves the appearance of the eye.
Droopy Eyelid Correction
Ptosis repair surgery resembles an upper blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift, but it is often more complex. Excess skin and fat can be removed, and the tissue on the upper eyelid can be tightened. However, restoring the function of the eyelid can require more than just a cosmetic droopy eyelid correction.
