Blepharoptosis: A Minimally Invasive Eyelid Ptosis Surgery To Help You Out!
Your eyes’ outlook can directly or indirectly affect your overall beauty. Cases where one of your eyes appears or feels tired, looks smaller than the other, or when the eyebrows appear higher than the normal, this may indicate that you have a condition known as “Blepharoptosis”. The condition develops in stages and usually becomes serious/obviously noticeable with time.
What is Blepharoptosis “Dropping Eyelids”?
Blepharoptosis is a medical condition in which an individual’s upper eyelid begins to drop. The condition tends to burden the victims and can trigger visual impairment and cosmetic concerns.
Also known as “Ptosis”, the condition can affect both children and adults. It can also be triggered by a number of factors and can manifest itself with a number of other conditions like headaches.
Common Causes of Ptosis
Ptosis occurs due to a number of factors, but commonly due to age. Ageing can trigger the Levator muscle to become loose. In other cases, it can develop in children due to congenital defects. Similarly, trauma can also trigger ptosis.
Medically, the condition can develop after an eye surgery such as Cataract and LASIK.
Ptosis Eyelid Surgery: What It Does!
The surgery corrects the droopy eyelid with a major aim of improving one’s aesthetic appearance or blocking numerous conditions that can develop from the mis-positioned (droopy) eyelid. Before the surgery, the surgeon will determine the strength of the Levator palpebrae Superioris Muscle (LPS).
In case the muscle is somehow strong, the surgeon will focus on correcting the muscle responsible for elevating the eyelid. He will also aim at making it stronger to work effectively. Cases where the eyelid muscle is weak, the surgeon will connect the forehead muscles to the eyelid muscle in order to raise it. This will also help to provide the required strength during eyelid functioning.
Normally, the sling (Tarso-Frontal Sling Surgery) may be natural and it is used to connect the forehead muscles to the eyelid muscles. In other cases, an artificial sling (silicone rod or Goretox or suture sling material) is used. The procedure generally depends on how serious a patient’s condition is.
Post-Ptosis Eyelid Surgery
The following must be expected after the Ptosis Eyelid Surgery;
These conditions may persist for a few days or even a week, but your post-op period is totally manageable.
Yous shouldn’t worry about scarring as that hardly occurs during the Ptosis Eyelid Surgery. Depending on your condition, you may be able to watch TV, use your phone or computer the next day of your surgery.
Are There Any Other Treatments For Ptosis?
Special Scleral contact lenses or glasses are commonly used to support the eyelid. Their efficacy generally depends on the Ptosis’ severity. Alternatively, surgical intervention is the permanent solution for the condition.
