Ptosis Repair Little Rock
Ptosis is a fairly common condition in which one or both of your upper eyelids droop so that the eyelid margin sags (this is a different condition than simply having excess skin). Droopy upper eyelids can make the eyes look abnormally small. Patients frequently report that they look tired, sleepy or old. If your main concern is the appearance, and your vision is not obstructed enough to meet criteria set forth by your insurance company, a corrective procedure is considered cosmetic. Droopy eyelids are usually due to aging. Other causes include allergies, eye rubbing, contact lens wear, congenital causes, and trauma. Most commonly, a droopy eyelid results from a stretching of the tendon attached to the muscle that lifts the upper eyelid. Surgery to repair ptosis usually involves precise tucking or reattaching of this muscle. Many times this can be accomplished without a skin incision by tucking the muscle on the undersurface of the eyelid.
