Expert Ptosis Repair in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, & Encino
There are a variety of reasons why peoples' eyelids start to droop (develop ptosis). Whatever the cause, ptosis, aside from its obvious cosmetic stigma, can truly affect one's vision. Needless to say, most people who develop a droopy eyelid seek medical attention immediately and request intervention. The most common reason people develop ptosis is that the tendon that keeps the eye open starts to dehisce and can no longer support the weight of the eyelid.
There are two basic ways ptosis can be repaired:
- From the outside (requires cutting the eyelid skin to access the underlying tendon)
- From the inside of the eyelid (the skin is totally spared)
Both of these approaches are very effective, but depending on the cause, Dr. Soroudi might decide to choose one approach over the other. As an expert Los Angeles oculoplastic surgeon, he performs both of these functional eyelid plastic surgery procedures in-house under only local anesthesia with minimal sedation for patient comfort. You may return to your usual work activities in a day or two with minimal bleeding or bruising.
Please note: Unfortunately, the patient above had dermal fillers (Juvederm) injected under her eyes by a Dermatologist prior to presenting to Dr. Soroudi's office; hence, the bumps under her eyelids.
