Ptosis repair with eyelid surgery

Some of my Houston eyelid surgery patients have uneven eyelids in addition to lower eyelid bags or excess skin of the upper eyelids. When one eyelid is a little lower than the other in relation to the globe or eyeball itself, this is called ptosis. Some may call it a lazy eye. With upper blepharoplasty alone, the excess skin is removed from the upper eyelid. However, in order to correct the asymmetry of the eyelids, ptosis repair must be performed with suspension of the tarsal plate of the upper eyelid.
