There are many nuances to the condition known as ptosis, each individual must be examined and treated to their specific condition but there are three different classifications that aid one in determining the best procedure that will handle the condition.
This condition is something you’re born with. So individuals with congenital ptosis usually have been suffering from it for many years. Using the most advanced surgical techniques, Dr. Liu and Dr. Kwon can handle ptosis if you’ve been living with it for 40 years or 4 years.
Many cases of ptosis come later in life due to age and the weakening of the levator muscle by nerve damage, a physically traumatic accident or old scar tissue can cause it as well.
Pseudoptosis can stem from hypotropia (a misalignment of the eyes), the eye’s muscles not working well and dermatochalasis (excess skin around the eyes). This isn’t a full list of causes of ptosis but the most common. Scheduling a consultation with Ptosis surgeons Dr. Liu and Dr. Kwon in Beverly Hills will help determine the cause and best treatment for you.
