Eyelid Ptosis: A Very Common Aesthetic Concern

Are you upset by the fact that your friends are always asking whether you are getting enough rest? Are you concerned that you always look tired, or that your face appears heavy, sleepy, or simply older than you would like? Are you dissatisfied with the results of a prior eye surgery? The fact is, our eyes are a central feature of the face and play a critical role in our appearance, and even small changes to the eyelids can have profound aesthetic implications. The technical term for sagging or drooping eyelids is eyelid ptosis and can be the unfortunate result of a prior surgery that utilized improper technique or failed to address the underlying cause of the original aesthetic concern, it can simply be one symptom of the natural aging process, or for some, they were born with the condition.
