How the eyes can deceive – a ptosis or drooping eyelid can make you look more tired than you are
Our connection with other people and our appreciation of their personality and their deeper soul can come from our perception of the appearance of their eyes.
Ptosis or droopy eyelids may give people the wrong message. You want to look attractive and desirable at every age. You probably want to have the best possible appearance for your eyes, and look and be beautiful.
People can alter how their eyes look at how much exercise they do, their diet, reducing stress and getting enough sleep. If they feel well, they project it out through their eyes, so they also look well. But if they have ptosis or droopy eyelid affecting one or both upper eyelids, this can make them look sleepy or unwell, when they do not feel that way. It does not represent their real self. Once a person’s eyes have begun to look droopy, it is probably time to do something about it and to fix it. To do that you will need to see a surgeon who specialises in eye surgery, who is called an oculoplastic surgeon.
An oculoplastic surgeon is often a member of the British Oculoplastic Surgery Society and will have done a designated fellowship to train in the surgery and management of patients with eyelid problems.
Not only do they train in the assessment and the surgery, but they can manage any of the potential complications after surgery. You want to correct your ptosis, but you don’t want post-operative dry eyes or the inability to close the eyelids following the correction of a droopy eyelid. To avoid this, oculoplastic surgeons consider the relationship between the eyelids and the surface of the eye to make sure that the two function well. In this way, they keep the best possible vision and ocular comfort while helping you look beautiful with youthful rested looking eyes.
By persevering you can get the look that you want back which is useful and attractive without ptosis or droopy eyelids by surgery under local anaesthetic from an oculoplastic surgeon.
