Ptosis is an affection where one eyelid or both upper eyelids are below their normal level, so that the eyelid fissure (the space between upper and lower eyelid) is reduced to various extent (‘droopy eyelids’).
Patients turn to oculoplasty surgeon:
The operation can use a combination of techniques to various extent, such as botox, micolipofilling, cantoplasty.
Each patient will be guided and advised on the most appropriate and advanced surgical practices, according to the latest guidelines of the International surgical associations
There are different techniques which allow a correction of the defect based on the residual function of the levator muscle of the eyelid.
The operation will be personalised to obtain a natural look, reflecting patient’s personality and individuality of his/her image, to comply with the wishes expressed during the initial interview
The incisions are hardly visible because they are performed following the natural lines of the face and as close as possible to the eyebrow margin.An adequate correction of ptosis allows the reinstating a normal position of the upper eyelids. Consequently, functional problems are solved (reduction of sight range, compromised sight) and abnormal positions of the front and neck eliminated (including the neck pain and headaches). The aesthetic look improves: the patient gets back the sharp and lively look and a his gaze is more focused and interesting.
