Ptosis Surgery

Ptosis is a condition where the upper eyelid droops down over the eye. The eyelid may only droop a little bit, or it could be severe enough that it covers the pupil. This can limit or even block normal vision.

Ptosis surgery, also known as eyelid surgery, is a procedure to tighten the muscle that lifts your upper eyelid. With age, the levator muscle that lifts your upper eyelid stretches and weakens, resulting in drooping eyelids.

Indications for Ptosis Surgery

Functional surgical indications currently in common use include the following:

- Impaired visual acuity

- Decreased peripheral vision

- A compensatory chin-up backward head tilt

- Difficulty reading

- Dermatitis

- Eye strain and fatigue

- And difficulty wearing a prosthesis in an anophthalmic socket.

Ptosis Surgery

Ptosis surgery is an outpatient procedure, which means that you can go home on the same day as the surgery. Local anesthesia will be used to numb your eye and the area around it.

In some cases, the surgeon may only need to make a small adjustment to the lid’s lifting muscle. However, for more severe ptosis, the levator muscle may need to be strengthened and reattached to the eyelid.

As is the case with any type of surgery, there are possible risks and complications associated with ptosis repair. Your ophthalmologist will discuss these with you in detail prior to the surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What can you not do after ptosis surgery?
After ptosis surgery, you should avoid heavy lifting and strenuous exercise for the first 7-10 days. This will help prevent over-exertion and allow you to recover more quickly. Taking some time to rest and relax may also help speed up your recovery.
How long will my vision be blurry after ptosis surgery?
Patients who have ptosis surgery can expect their vision to be blurry for around 1-2 days afterwards. This is because the surgery affects the muscles that control blinking, and it takes time for them to recover.
Is Ptosis Surgery Safe?
Ptosis surgery is a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of droopy eyelids. The surgery is typically performed by an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon or oculoplastic surgeon. The risks of ptosis surgery are typically low, but as with any surgery, there are some potential risks and side effects that you should be aware of. These include bleeding, infection, and other complications.
How long does ptosis surgery take?
On average, eyelid ptosis surgery takes between 60 and 80 minutes. The duration of the surgery will depend on the number of eyelids that are being operated on - if both upper eyelids require surgery, the procedure will naturally take longer. During the surgery, your surgeon will make an incision on the natural crease of your eyelid skin.
How much does ptosis surgery cost?
The inclusive package for the whole procedure is 150000 Pak Rs.
