Reasons for Ptosis Correction

There are three main reasons ptosis correction is required. One is for aesthetic reasons. As mentioned above, patients with ptosis have their eyelids positioned below the ideal height and tend to look harsh and unfriendly. Therefore, it can hamper their day-to-day interactions with other people as a result of insecurities associated with how they appear. Another reason is dysfunctionality of their eyes as patients who suffer from ptosis have difficultly opening their eyes and are forced to strain their brows and wrinkle their forehead. Lastly, patient seeking double eyelid surgery must undergo ptosis correction otherwise the surgery will further exacerbate or bring out their ptosis condition.
