Correct Your Drooping Eyelids with Eyelid Ptosis Repair

If you have found yourself interested in a method by which you can address eyelids that droop or sag, eyelid ptosis repair surgery—sometimes also referred to as blepharoplasty or, more simply, eyelid surgery—is here to help. Drooping or sagging can impact either the upper or lower eyelids and can present for any number of reasons. Sometimes, these features are simply caused by your genetic makeup, while other times, they can be caused by the natural facial aging process.

Drooping eyelids can impact your appearance by making you look older or more tired than you actually are and can impact your vision by causing your upper eyelids to sag down in a way that partially covers your pupils and prevents you from enjoying your fullest possible field of vision. Eyelid ptosis repair presents patients with both functional and cosmetic benefits as it can restore your sight and also help you show the world a rejuvenated facial appearance and a more youthful look.

At Elite Plastic Surgery, our team is guided by the expertise of three brothers: Dr. Rozbeh Torabi, MD; Dr. Radbeh Torabi, MD; and Dr. Ramyar Torabi, MD. Each brother is a board-certified plastic surgeon, offering patients extensive training, a deep well of surgical experience, and a keenly developed artistic sensibility that enables them to consistently create naturalistic results. If you’d like to learn more about what our talented team can do for you, reach out to our Chandler location and schedule your consultation today.

The Ideal Eyelid Surgery Candidate

Eyelid ptosis surgery is ideal for anyone who is interested in correcting sagging or drooping of either the upper or lower eyelids. When you visit Elite Plastic Surgery for your initial consultation at our Chandler or Phoenix offices, you’ll meet with a member of our surgical team who will learn about your goals, perform a physical exam, and help you decide whether or not ptosis repair is the ideal choice to you. 

They’ll work with you to explore the various procedures we offer and craft a treatment plan that is personalized directly to you and your needs. Ptosis repair surgery may be ideal for you if you’ve experienced cosmetic changes that have impacted your look, as drooping eyelids can sometimes make you appear older than you are or lead to a somewhat tired appearance that doesn’t line up with your inner vitality. This surgery will likely also be recommended if your drooping eyelids have been negatively impacting your vision, as the results can significantly restore your full quality of life.

Your Surgical Experience

Getting Prepared

During your pre-operative consultations, we’ll make sure that you know everything about your procedure. We tailor each treatment to the individual, and your surgeon will be sure to walk you through the ins and outs of your procedure plan so that you know exactly what to expect. We’ll help you with everything you need to be prepared for your ptosis repair surgery.

The Day of Surgery

Eyelid ptosis repair is a relatively brief surgical procedure and is performed on an outpatient basis. This means that you’ll be able to return home once the procedure is over. Local anesthesia is often used for this procedure, which typically takes between one and two hours to complete, depending on the specifics of your treatment plan.

The Procedure Itself

During the procedure, your surgeon will carefully place incisions such that they are easily hidden by your facial features, typically running along your eyelid’s naturally formed crease. The muscles and tissues that are causing your eyelids to sag or droop will be expertly tightened before the incisions are meticulously closed and your surgery is complete.

After the Surgery

Once the surgery is complete, you’ll be moved into a comfortable recovery area where you’ll spend a bit of time waking up. You’ll need a friend to drive you home as the anesthesia continues to wear off, and can then begin the recovery period. We’ll provide you with everything you need to remain as comfortable as possible.

Detailed Instructions

You’ll experience some swelling and discomfort in the week following your eyelid ptosis repair surgery. This is quite normal, and we’ll make sure that you are given everything you need to recover in comfort. We’ll provide you with a clear set of aftercare instructions that will give you key steps to help you recover as effectively as possible. You’ll be provided with a recovery timeline that explains what you can expect in detail.

Back to Normal

You can expect to see your final result after about two to three months once the swelling has fully subsided and your eyelids have had a chance to fully settle into their final positions. We’ll be sure to schedule follow-up appointments with you to ensure that you’re healing properly. Most patients are able to resume their normal activities after about one to two weeks, depending on their comfort levels.
