Eyelid Ptosis Repair in Springfield, MO
Our eyes allow us to experience the world, but when that view is obstructed by excess skin, taking in our surroundings for all their beauty can be challenging. With age comes upper eyelid sagging and frustrating vision problems—but we don’t have to accept these difficulties. At Bentley Skincare & Wellness, we provide eyelid ptosis repair to raise sagging eyelids, improve vision, and ultimately restore your confidence.
How Does Ptosis Repair Work?
Ptosis is a condition that develops when one or both of your upper eyelids starts to sag. Not only can drooping eyelids cause you to lose confidence in your appearance, but it can also lead to problematic vision loss, dry or watery eyes, and an achy sensation from forehead strain. Thankfully, Bentley Skincare & Wellness’ oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Delport has ample experience solving this problem in a safe and effective manner. In fact, Dr. Delport is the only fellowship trained oculoplastic surgeon in the entire Springfield area.
Before we begin your eyelid ptosis repair procedure, Dr. Delport will consult with you to determine the best course of action for your specific needs. Once a corrective plan is in place, Dr. Delport will use specialized techniques to create a small incision in your eyelid—carefully repositioning the muscle that’s responsible for lifting your eyelid. Before you know it, you won’t have to tilt your head back to see clearly and you’ll be able to walk out the door each day with confidence in your eyes.
Eyelid ptosis repair lightens the load for already weakened eyelid muscles so you strain less to keep your eyes open. Naturally, with the removal of excess skin comes a rejuvenated appearance and a boost in confidence. If you’ve experienced any of these symptoms and want to take control of your eyesight for good, the professionals at Bentley Skincare & Wellness can walk you through a consultation.
Frequently Asked Questions
There are many causes for eyelid sagging, including certain medical conditions and age-related changes. Over time, your muscles and skin lose strength and become stretched, causing your eyelids to sag. Wearing contacts and frequently rubbing your eyes can also cause this problem when you’re older.
Additional causes for eyelid sagging include:
- Congenital ptosis: when you’re born with a saggy eyelid
- Muscle problems
- Nervous system issues
- Cataract procedure
Each patient’s recovery process is different, but upon completion of your surgery, Dr. Delport will provide you with a list of customized aftercare instructions for the fastest and best results. These instructions will require you to take a minimum of seven days off work, use prescription eye drops, avoid rubbing your eyes, wear sunglasses outdoors due to light sensitivity, and more.
A few symptoms of eyelid ptosis include needing to move your head back when trying to see, dry eyes, crossed eye development, eye fatigue, or watery eyes.
