About Ptosis Surgery

This information is intended for general information only and should not be considered as medical advice on the part of Health-Tourism.com. Any decision on medical treatments, after-care or recovery should be done solely upon proper consultation and advice of a qualified physician.

What is Ptosis Surgery?
Ptosis can be treated with surgery where the lid or lids are elevated to a normal position in order to improve vision and the appearance of the eye. Ptosis surgery is also referred to as Blepharoptosis or a Blepharoplasty.

What are the types of Ptosis Surgery?
The most common procedures to correct Ptosis are:

  • Shortening the muscle: The surgeon makes a cut along the fold of the upper eyelid. The surgeon then raises the eyelid by shortening the muscle that lifts the lid, calculating how much muscle to remove in order to achieve the best lift. The incision is closed with stitches.
  • Sling surgery: When the eyelid muscle is too weak, the surgeon connects muscles in the forehead to the lid through the use of slings - strips made from synthetic materials or tendons from the leg.

Duration of procedure/surgery : 1 - 3 hours, depending on the procedure used.

Days admitted : None – ptosis surgery is carried out on an outpatient basis.

Anesthesia : Ptosis surgery is normally carried out under local anesthesia although children may take general anesthesia.

Recovery : - Non-dissolvable stitches will be removed 3 to 5 days following ptosis surgery. - Most people will return to work one week following ptosis surgery. - Scars from ptosis surgery may take up to six months to fade.

Risks : - Soreness, swelling or bruising. - Tightness of the eyelid leading to difficulties closing the eye. - Dry, irritated or itchy eyes. - Discoloration on the eyelid skin. - Bleeding under the skin or behind the eye. - Uneven appearance of the eyelids that may require a second operation. - Vision changes (temporary) such as double vision.

After care : - Avoid rubbing your eyelid or transferring dirt to the eye. - Use ice packs or cold compresses to reduce swelling. - Avoid heavy lifting. - Don’t take part in strenuous activities for a week following ptosis surgery. - Sleep with your head raised above your chest. - Use prescribed eye drops and ointment. - Refrain from wearing contact lenses for two weeks.
