What is Ptosis Repair?

Ptosis is a medical condition where the upper eyelid sags over the eye. Sometimes the drooping is minor, and in other cases, it can cover the pupil and block the range of vision. Ptosis affecting both eyes is called bilateral ptosis, and unilateral ptosis if it affects just one eye.

Ptosis repair is a surgical procedure that tightens the muscle in the upper eyelid, known as the levator muscle. This process corrects eyelid drooping by lifting the eyelid back to the desired, natural-looking position and restoring an awake, revitalized appearance to the eye area.

Benefits of Ptosis Repair

Surgical ptosis repair addresses aesthetic concerns regarding eyelids that have begun to droop below their natural-looking position. Some benefits you can enjoy from the procedure include:

  • Long-lasting results
  • Improved vision
  • Brighter eyes
  • Rejuvenated appearance

Am I a Candidate?

If you are in good overall physical health and experiencing upper eyelid sagging in one or both eyes, you may be an ideal candidate for ptosis surgery. Dr. Sykes will assess the condition of your eyelids in a thorough physical examination to determine if ptosis repair is the best option for you to achieve your aesthetic goals. Schedule your consultation in Beverly Hills today and talk with our compassionate expert.

What is the Procedure Like?

As an outpatient procedure, ptosis repair utilizes a combination of sedation and local anesthesia to maximize your comfort throughout the operation. Dr. Sykes will determine the ideal surgical approach during your consultation and use one of two options, depending on the severity of your condition.

Mild Ptosis Repair

For mild cases of ptosis, Dr. Sykes will use an internal approach with an incision inside the eyelid crease or below the eyelid to conceal any scarring. He will tighten the levator muscle to correct the eyelid position and then close the incision with sutures.

Moderate to Severe Repair

In moderate to severe cases of ptosis, Dr. Sykes will perform the frontalis suspension technique using an incision along the eyelid crease. He will attach a suture to the forehead muscle to aid heavier eyelid drooping, so the eyelids remain elevated.

The Recovery Process

After surgery, patients must avoid driving and other activities for a few days. Dr. Sykes will provide a lubricating eye ointment to keep your eyes moist while they recover. You may experience swelling, bruising, and slight discomfort for the first week or two. Once the eyelid has fully settled, after several months, you will see your final results.
