Best Ptosis Surgeon: Get Rid of Droopy Eyelids with Ptosis Surgery

Posted by Oculoplastic Eyelid Orbit Surgery on March 2nd, 2017

Ptosis surgery is one of the most widely performed procedures by oculoplastic surgeons. It is a common reconstructive surgery where the surgeon fixes the problem of droopy eyelids. Ptosis has many causes including an age-related weakening of the muscle, long-term use of contact lens, congenital weakness, trauma, or sometimes neurologic disease. The problem can occur either in one eye (single eyelid drooping) or both the eyes (both eyelids drooping). Droopy eyelids can reduce the vision of the patient and give a tired and sleepy appearance.

In some cases, droopy eyelids automatically get better with time but in other cases, it necessitates medical attention. However, if early signs of droopy eyelids can be detected, it can be treated effectively. People having such symptoms should seek proper medical attention immediately before the condition worsens. The first step is to consult your regular doctor and then find an oculoplastic specialist.

During a ptosis surgery, the operating surgeon should meticulously measure and record all the relevant preoperative and surgical details. This provides valuable information about small adjustments and ensures the success of the treatment procedure. It is the job of the surgeon to decide whether an internal approach or an external approach is suitable for treatment. A surgeon who does measuring and re-measuring is likely to obtain the best results from the procedure as these are critical to success. It also helps determines the number of visits required for the treatment.

The patient should be made aware of the approach to be taken by the surgeon. Once the patient understands the medical and cosmetic aspects of the surgery, it will be easy for the surgeon to perform the treatment and attain realistic results. A good surgeon is always concerned about the desired results, even after the surgery has been performed.

The charges of the treatment can be easily covered under health insurance. However, some cosmetic treatments require additional payment as expenses for them are not covered by insurance companies.

The goal of any good ptosis surgeon is to make you see and look better. Ptosis repair requires extensive experience and is usually performed by an ophthalmologist who specializes in eyelid surgery. A cosmetic and reconstructive facial surgeon specializing in eyelids, orbit, and tear drain system is best. The surgeon must perform a large number of procedures to acquire a good skill level. In the hands of an experienced practitioner, the surgical correction of droopy eyelids is successful and results in improved comfort and appearance as well as an expanded field of vision. The desired result requires patient compliance and close follow-up.
