How to Get Rid of the Droop: The Truth Behind Blepharoptosis
Botox has gained popularity amongst both men and women for its ability to temporarily get rid of sagging skin, and fine lines and wrinkles. As an unfortunate part of the aging process, the skin all around your face and body starts to lose collagen and elasticity. If you have started to notice that the skin around your upper eyelids has started to sag and droop, you may have blepharoptosis. Although blepharoptosis is an eye condition that can be present at birth, it is typically caused by injury, age, or trauma. Luckily, with the help of modern medicine, you can get rid of your droopy eyelids and restore your youthful appearance in no time. Read on to learn more.
What Are Symptoms Like?
Droopy eyelids are not only a physical flaw, but if left untreated they can obscure your vision. Additionally, many patients who have blepharoptosis complain of having difficulty with things like putting on eyeliner or mascara. The good thing about blepharoptosis is that it isn’t painful, just irritating.
What Is Treatment Like?
Depending on how severe your blepharoptosis is, you may need to receive surgical treatment to help fix it. During the surgery, one of our surgeons at Millennium Park Eye Center will remove the excess skin and tissue around the eyes and then stitch it up. By making small incisions, you should have minimal scarring.
