Ptosis repair & Upper Eyelids
Don’t Leave Your Lids Lacking in Lift
Not all droopy lids are because of extra skin. As the photo shows, where the lash line rests can be too low. This can make you look tired, older, sleepy or even “high” if it affects both lids.
The muscle that raises the lid is called the levator. Think elevator! Whether it is weakened or stretched, there are many reasons for diminished elevation of the lid. Sometimes lash growth serums, glaucoma medicines or even prior blepharoplasty can leave the lids lacking in lift.
When the upper eyelid drifts downward and creates that tired, worn-out appearance, this is known as upper eyelid ptosis.
Upper eyelid Ptosis Repair is a procedure that tightens and repositions the levator muscle. The incision is usually hidden in the natural lid crease. Or if a new lid crease is desired, that can be created as well.
Upper eyelid Ptosis Repair can be combined with blepharoplasty, brow procedures, or canthal procedures. It can recreate the upward curl of the lashes of our youth. This opens the upper eyelids, creating a more youthful, rested, and symmetrical appearance.
