Ptosis Repair

Upper eyelid Ptosis Repair is a procedure that tightens and repositions the levator muscle. The incision is usually hidden in the natural lid crease. However, if a new eyelid crease is desired, that can be created as well.

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 eyelid. Sometimes lash growth serums, glaucoma medicines, or even prior blepharoplasty can leave the lids drooping.

Top Benefits of Upper Eyelid Ptosis Repair

Elevate the height of the upper eyelids

Improve asymmetry if one eyelid is droopier than the other

Create a more rested, youthful appearance

More youthful upwardly curled eye lashes

Upper eyelid Ptosis Repair can be combined with blepharoplasty, eyebrow procedures, or canthal procedures. The procedure can recreate the upward curl of the lashes of our youth and open the upper eyelids which will create a more youthful, rested, and symmetrical appearance.
