Ptosis Surgery does NOT equal Upper Blepharoplasty
Upper blepharoplasty removes skin (+/- fat) from upper eyelids. It does NOT alter eyelid position. As someone ages, the upper eyelid drops due to stretching of the muscle responsible for lifting the upper eyelid. That is called ptosis and it is treated by tightening that muscle. The procedure is called eyelid ptosis surgery. See an oculoplastic surgeon. See following link and video.
Ptosis repair and blepharoplasty
Ptosis or Blepharoptosis is an abnormal drooping of the upper eyelid. This can affect one or both eyes in varying degrees.It's important to diagnose ptosis before moving forward with a blepharoplasty. The ptosis repair can be performed at the same time as the blepharoplasty for a better result. I trust my oculoplastic surgeon colleagues (eyelid specialists) to help me diagnose and treat ptosis. Safety comes first.
An in person exam is key
Unfortunately these photos don't really show us the state of your eyelids. I'd recommend an examination with an oculoplastic surgeon who can evaluate the eyelid opening and amount of extra skin. Feel free to contact us if you are in Salt Lake City.
Unfortunately your eyes are closed in this photo so it is impossible to know what is going on.
You may benefit from eyelid surgery but without a photo of you with your eyes open, it is impossible to know what is going on. Please see a fellowship trained oculoplastic surgeon to personally assess your issues.
