Upper Eyelid Ptosis – Blepharoplasty Fort Lauderdale

Upper Eyelid Ptosis Fort Lauderdale

Are you experiencing vision issues as a result of drooping eyelids? Lax, sagging eyelid skin on the upper eyelids can be a frustrating problem. To correct this issue, upper eyelid ptosis surgery may be necessary.

What is upper eyelid ptosis? With age, the muscles of the eyelids become weaker, and the tissue begins to sag. When the tissue sags so far down that it impairs the patient’s vision, this is an example of eyelid ptosis causing functional issues.

To fix your upper eyelid ptosis and improve your quality of life, it will be helpful to contact our office and arrange an appointment for a consultation. Dr. David Felder, an ophthalmic plastic surgeon board-certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology, will be able to answer any questions you may have.
