What Is Droopy Eyelid Surgery?

Droopy eyelid surgery is a procedure that focuses on treating ptosis, or sagging of the eyelids. This type of surgery can be done to the upper or lower eyelids, though ptosis is more common on the upper eyelids. The procedure focuses on correcting loose, drooping, or sagging skin that may be present due to a number of reasons. For some patients, their eyelid position may change as part of the aging process, but other factors can also be at play. Dr. Sohrab personalizes ptosis surgery based on the unique causes of your individual situation.
In some cases, ptosis surgery may also be used to improve or restore the function of the eyelid. If a droopy eyelid is interfering with sight or putting your eye at risk, the procedure may be covered by insurance.

What Is the Procedure Like?

Your droopy eyelid surgery procedure is typically done as an outpatient procedure, which means you can go home the same day. First, Dr. Sohrab will administer local anesthesia to numb the area and minimize any discomfort, though some patients may prefer IV sedation to remain comfortable. She will then make an incision in your eyelid to access the muscles and tissues that need to be adjusted. With ptosis surgery, the focus is on making subtle changes that can last for years to give your eyes a vibrant look to them. Generally, you can expect your procedure to last about 1-2 hours, though this can vary based on your procedure plan. Patients also commonly take this opportunity to combine droopy eyelid surgery with other procedures to further improve their results.

Testimonial Image
I had extremely droopy eyelids with one side worse than the other. Dr. Sohrad did upper lid surgery and managed to make both of my eyes symmetrical. She is talented, kind and patient. She took the time to listen to my concerns, answer thoughtfully and made me feel very relaxed about the procedure that she would preform. The staff and nurse were all calm, kind and professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Sohrab for eyelid surgery.
