This 74 year old male had low lying upper eyelids with edema and visual field defect. The left eye had very noticeable drooping. With a very obvious and hyper animated forehead, it was felt that simply repairing the left side would leave the patient with drooping visible on the right side. Therefore ptosis repair was performed on the both eyes along with bilateral upper lid blepharoplasty. Fat pads were removed. After the surgery, there was still some ptosis, but it was greatly improved.
