Weak Levator Muscle Tendon
Have you noticed that your eyes are looking tired or sad because your eyelids are droopy? Drooping eyelids most often occur in older people as the eyelid muscles become stretched or loose over time, however, the condition can also be congenital (born with it), or occur following a traumatic injury or neurological condition. Fortunately, it is possible to correct this condition, known as blepharoptosis, through surgery.
If you or someone you care about is dealing with droopy eyelids that are not only causing a sleepy, tired appearance, but also vision issues, it is time to contact Taban MD in Beverly Hills for high-quality treatment. Do not wait another day to schedule a consultation.
What Causes Blepharoptosis?
Drooping, sleepy looking eyelids are often a result of old age, as the eyelid muscles called levators can become weak or stretched over time. In some cases, fat or excess skin around the eyelid can cause weak levator muscle tendons. In order to correct the loose or weakened muscle tendon, it is possible to shorten and reposition the tendon and allow the lid to lift to a natural looking position on the eyes. This procedure is a ptosis treatment.
What to Expect after Ptosis Surgery?
After a weak levator muscle tendon is resectioned and tightened, a patient may experience blurry vision, swelling, redness, and soreness. Fortunately, these side effects tend to dissipate over several weeks, while the patient’s body heals.
