Ptosis Surgery in Dallas, TX
Upper eyelid surgery may correct one or both upper eyelids due to a medical rather than a strictly cosmetic issue—even though similar problems are being addressed.
Ptosis surgery aims to tighten the muscle that lifts your upper eyelid. This issue can occur with age, or the patient may be born with this condition; the muscle that lifts your upper eyelid stretches and weakens, which causes your upper eyelid to sag, hang, or otherwise not be as responsive as would be considered normal.
Some patients are as young as 25, while others are 65. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that more than 90 percent of patients seeking an eyelid lift are over 40, and most of this segment is over 55. However, patients with ptosis or naturally hooded eyelids may seek treatment in their 20s and 30s or earlier.
