First, despite what another surgeon indicated, ptosis surgery takes more time than just one week to heal from. Most people take off about 10 days from work but this really depends on what you do for a living. The critical thing for you is that yes you need ptosis repaired but you also need the upper eyelid folds corrected. That requires a structured blepharoplasty. That means tightening the upper eyelid platform skin to support the upper eyelid lashes and make them perky. It means restructuring the multiple creases to make a single upper eyelid crease. That is done by performing an anterior levator ptosis surgery and an anchor blepharoplasty. It all starts with a very detailed personal consultation.
Looking at your photo I would say that you have Ptosis and are a candidate for ptosis repair. I would suggest a complete examination by an oculoplastic surgeon. The eyelids are dynamic structures and are best fully evaluated in person. Good Luck.
Hello, looks like you may have upper lid ptosis (droopy lids). You should make an appointment with an Oculoplastic surgeon for an examination. Ptosis surgery can help improve the eyelid position. Best of luck.
Thank you for sharing your question and photos. There are several techniques which can be used to lift your ptotic eyelids. See an experienced Oculoplastic Surgeon for comprehensive evaluation and guidance. Good luck,
You do have bilateral upper eyelid ptosis and should benefit from ptosis surgery. See an oculoplastic surgeon for evaluation and treatment. See link and video below.
surgery to repair ptosis is fairly straightforward in the hands of someone experienced and deals with a lot of eyelids. Assuming you are young and healthy, recovery should be less than a week. It is difficult to say for sure what the issue is and an in person consultation will best be able to make the correct diagnosis and send you down the correct medical or surgical path.
Thanks for your question. I think you'd be a great candidate for ptosis repair with blepharoplasty. It would make your eyes look brighter, wider and more awake. You should see an oculoplastic surgeon for a consultation.
