Ptosis Surgery. My ptosis tends to get worse as the day goes on. Will this affect the outcome of surgery?
Doctor Answers 3
There is a medical condition called myasthenia gravis - has this been excluded in your case? If you definitely do not have this condition, nor hypothyroidism, then I do not believe that progressive worsening of your ptosis over the day will likely alter the surgical outcome.
The key is this: What is the diagnosis? Ptosis is a description, not a condition. There is a cause. So, the cause being correctly diagnosed will provide the answer to your question.
If you're not sure of the underlying cause of the ptosis, please visit your doctor and ensure that you have it all explained to you.
I hope this helps,
