what is ptosis lid and brow repair?

This is due to weakened muscles that lead the eyelid to stretch, which could be caused from a variety of factors, including age, genetics, or some sort of injury or trauma.

Through muscle repair, Dr. Farr can correct these issues that create a droopy eyelid or eyebrow.

how is ptosis treated?
Eyelid and brow ptosis are generally corrected with surgery. For the eyelid, an upper lid ptosis repair surgery is performed to repair, re-attach, or reinforce the eyelid muscles. This can be coupled with blepharoplasty, or an eyelid lift as it's often called, to remove excess skin from the eyelids for a more awakened appearance. If a droopy brow is a concern, brow ptosis repair surgery is used. While these techniques differ, the overall approach is the same — repair the muscle as necessary, remove excess tissue, and tighten the remaining skin to achieve a taut appearance. Recovery will vary, depending on the type of surgery, degrees of skin laxity, age of the patient, and whether one or more areas are being treated. During your consult at VIP Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Farr will review all the costs, benefits, and risks of treatment so you can know what to expect and make a well-informed decision.
