Ptosis, commonly known as droopy eyelids, is a condition where the upper eyelid sags or droops, impacting both the appearance and functionality of the eyes. Dr. Kian Eftekhari at Eyelid Center of Utah specializes in diagnosing and treating ptosis, offering personalized solutions for each patient.

Causes of Ptosis

Ptosis can be caused by various factors, including age-related tissue weakening, muscle dysfunction, nerve damage, or congenital issues. Understanding the underlying cause is crucial for developing an effective treatment plan.

Symptoms and Impact

Droopy eyelids not only affect aesthetics but can also lead to visual obstruction, eye strain, and fatigue. Patients may experience a reduction in the visual field and an overall tired appearance. Addressing ptosis is essential for both cosmetic enhancement and functional improvement.

Treatment Options | Surgical and Nonsurgical

Dr. Eftekhari employs advanced surgical techniques to correct ptosis and restore a more youthful and vibrant eye appearance. The specific approach depends on the severity of the condition and its underlying cause. Surgical interventions may involve tightening or repositioning the eyelid muscles to achieve optimal results. Additionally, Upneeq, a nonsurgical option, may be recommended in certain cases to improve eyelid positioning and enhance symmetry.

Ideal Candidates for Ptosis Treatment

Individuals experiencing droopy eyelids, whether due to aging, injury, or congenital factors, may be suitable candidates for ptosis correction. Dr. Kian Eftekhari conducts a thorough evaluation to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for each patient.

Recovery and Results

Following ptosis surgery, patients can expect a period of recovery during which swelling and bruising gradually subside. Dr. Eftekhari provides detailed post-operative care instructions to ensure a smooth healing process. The results of ptosis correction are typically long-lasting, providing enhanced eyelid aesthetics and improved vision.
