Ptosis Repair & Blepharoplasty Before & After | BL10
This is a 56 year old female who initially saw a Regional Opthalmologist because she was haivng difficulty seeing, and was then referred to Dr. Edwin Williams. She was concerned about the appearance of her eyes, but was mostly concerned with the fact that by the end of the day she had a difficut time seeing and was fearful of driving since her peripheral vision was affected.
Dr. Williams diagnosed this patient with excess skin of the upper eyes as well as an upper eyelid senile ptosis. This ptosis results because of the weakening of the upper eyelid muscle which is a levator muscle. Excess skin can be removed and the muscle repaired at the same time. If the examining physician misses the muscle weakness and the patient undergoes only a Blepharopolasty, their eyes will look a little better, but they will still look tired and will not have the functional part of this aspect fixed.
This patient underwent a Ptosis Repair inconjunction with a Blepharoplasty by Dr. Williams who is a Double-Certified Board Facial Plastic Surgeon and Facial Rejuvenation Specialist who's main office is located in Latham, New York at the Williams Plastic Surgery Specialists.
