When the upper eyelid does not stay completely open, the eyes appear tired. For those with ptosis, their upper eyelids droop, creating this ongoing sleepy appearance. This condition can be caused by weakened, ruptured or strained tendons, referred to as acquired ptosis. When this occurs, eye plastic surgery may be the only option to correct a droopy eyelid for appearance and function.

A drooping upper eyelid from acquired ptosis can alter the appearance of the eyes and face. Even a slight droop can make the eyes look tired. Droopy eyes can also create a “lazy” or sleepy look. In addition to the appearance, those with ptosis may experience tired eyes or headaches from the strain of holding their eyelids open. Upper eyelid surgery can help correct this condition, improving the function and appearance of the affected eye.

Droopy Eyelid Correction

Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, offers droopy eyelid correction surgery at his offices in New York to restore open, awake eyes for patients with acquired ptosis. This condition often occurs due to years of strain on the eyelid tendons, eventually causing damage that restricts function. Through surgery, the eyelid can be lifted, helping to make it easier to keep eyes fully open. Patients can benefit from a more energetic appearance and decreased discomfort caused by eye strain.

Ptosis can be acquired through eye tendon strain, or it can be congenital on one or both eyes. It is important to have a thorough examination and diagnostic testing to determine the best option to correct the appearance and improve the function of the upper eyelid.

If you have droopy eyelids that make you look tired or have impacted your comfort, contact the office of Dr. Rosenberg to schedule a consultation. You may be a candidate for ptosis surgery to improve your appearance and eye function.

I haven't the opportunity to meet the doctor yet, I have an appointment. I was referred by an ENT doctor in NJ, Dr. Douglas Leventhal, nice, young, excellent bed manners. Unfortunately he does not reconstruction nasal perforation, but he was very interested in helping me, and he referred me to a colleague in NY, and asked me wait a call from them, otherwise to call him back if they didn't contact me. Thanks GOD, they are very efficient and received, today two calls , I finally got to talk to Evelyn, very kind, and patient, gave me the appointment, I hope that my present health problem due to bad medical practice years ago, Dr. Rossenberg, can reconstruct my septum. I thank you from deep of my heart.
