What is the surgery for droopy eyelids

Surgical Solutions for Droopy Eyelids with Dr. Jon Mendelsohn


Droopy eyelids, or ptosis, can impair vision and detract from your appearance, often leading individuals to seek a surgical solution. The surgery for droopy eyelids varies based on the underlying cause and severity of the condition. At the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center, Dr. Jon Mendelsohn, a distinguished facial plastic surgeon, offers specialized surgeries to effectively correct ptosis, enhancing both your vision and facial aesthetics.

Types of Droopy Eyelid Surgeries

  • Upper Blepharoplasty: Primarily aimed at removing excess skin and fat from the upper eyelids, this procedure can significantly lift the eyelids, offering a more youthful and alert appearance. It is particularly beneficial for those with droopy eyelids caused by skin laxity.
  • Ptosis Repair: This surgery specifically targets the muscle or tendon responsible for lifting the eyelid. By tightening the levator muscle or reattaching it more effectively, ptosis repair can restore proper eyelid function and appearance. This procedure is essential for cases where droopiness affects the eyelid’s ability to open fully.
  • Brow Lift: In cases where droopy eyelids are accompanied by or primarily due to brow ptosis (sagging of the eyebrows), a brow lift may be recommended. By elevating the brows to their natural position, this procedure can alleviate the weight on the eyelids, indirectly correcting the droopiness.
