With age, the eyelid raising mechanism weakens, and you can have what is called eyelid ptosis. If you are interested in facial rejuvenation or eyelid surgery, during your consultation, you will be assessed for eyelid ptosis. Ptosis often goes undiagnosed and under corrected, and this can mean the difference between an average result and a very good result. As well, if you have eyelid ptosis, your problem is not just cosmetic – your eyelid elevator and forehead muscles are working overtime to hold up your eyelid! Correcting ptosis is fairly straightforward, and can make a huge difference in your energy level and eyesight!
