Blepharoplasty Combined with Ptosis Repair
There are two 'main' surgeries that may possibly be performed on the upper eyelid.
- Ptosis is the medical term for drooping of the upper eyelid; it may possibly affect one or both eyes.
- Pseudoptosis is different from ptosis and refers to the situation when excess skin may possibly encroach on the eyelid; it may possibly affect one or both eyelids and is repaired by blepharoplastY
Thus the patient has two eyelid conditions that should be evaluated.
When you elevate the skin (photograph on the right), once can see the patient has ptosis.
|Repair of Ptosis||Removal of Excess Skin|
|Repair the one or both of the eyelid muscles that has weakened resulting in a ptotic eyelid.
||Your droopy upper eyelids and droopy brows may possibly give you the appearance of being sleepy, tired and aging prematurely
