Is Ptosis Surgery Different for Asian Eyelids?
I am an Asian male with congenital ptosis. I was wondering in general, would ethnicity play a role in how a surgeon may perform ptosis surgery or is ethnicity not a factor? I am wondering due to Asian eyes being slightly different (ie. Many Asian eyes don’t have the lid creases such as Caucasian eyes). I wanted to make sure that I understand things and know if I should or shouldn’t be concerned if a particular surgeon hasn’t performed ptosis surgery on Asian eyes in specific.
It is best for you to find an oculoplastic surgeon with experience fixing Asian eyelids.
