It is almost the same as the case above. I did the same treatment.

It is not only caused by aging or irritation from contact lenses.  It can also be caused by eye drops.

The difference between the left eyelid and right eyelid also shows the effect of blepharoptosis on facial expressions.

The original article is “Glaucoma Eye Drops Cause Ptosis, What is ‘Prostaglandin-Related Periorbititis’?

“The width of double-eyelids is getting wider and wider”, another sign of ptosis. The patient had been using contact lenses for a long time.

The original page, “Posterior Lobe Ptosis is True Eyelid Ptosis. Explaining the difference from anterior lobe ptosis (sagging).”

Eyelid ptosis resulting from disease (symptomatic ptosis). Right-sided Horner’s syndrome.

The main cause of ptosis in this case is sagging of the anterior lobe of the eyelid (skin). This is different from true ptosis. It is referred to as pseudo ptosis (dermatochalasis). It is treated with a different concept than typical ptosis surgery.

It may be hard to tell, but can you see how the tension between my eyebrows has relaxed?

In seniors, true ptosis may be accompanied by drooping of the anterior lobe (skin and orbicularis oculi). Like case 1(posterior ptosis) combined with case 8(anterior ptosis).

The posterior lobe (levator muscle) functions well but difficult to raise anterior lobe.

After surgery, the brow position has been lowered and the sagging skin has been intensified. Horizontal wrinkles appear at the bridge of the nose and at the outer edge of the eyes.

This article is not a promotion of any particular surgery, but rather a miscellaneous article by a plastic surgeon in pursuit of the physiology of the eyelid. The purpose of this article is to share information with you and to pursue the truth about eyelids. Surgery itself has its own risks (bleeding, scarring, left/right differences, discomfort, etc.) and should be considered carefully.

Extra

P.S. “once-in-a-lifetime chance”

As I sort through the photos of the models, I always feel that “everyone’s eyelids are different. There is no such thing as the same eyelid.”

I will never see this eyelid again.

This is what I think when I perform surgery.

It is truly a “once in a lifetime” experience.

Speaking of which…

Sagrada Familia, an unfinished masterpiece…

I visited Barcelona in January 2020.

This masterpiece has always offered a “once in a lifetime” opportunity in the form of construction in progress.

However, it is planned to be completed by 2026.

Before that! I rushed to visit but was told that the scheduled completion date has been pushed further into the future.
