Ptosis, or droopy eyelid, is a condition that affects many people, both young and old. It is a condition in which the upper eyelid droops over the eye, often leading to a tired and aged appearance. In some cases, ptosis can even interfere with vision, making it difficult to see properly.
If you are experiencing ptosis, you may be wondering if you are a candidate for ptosis correction. The good news is that there are many effective treatments available to correct this condition, including surgery. To determine if you are a candidate for ptosis correction, it is important to schedule a consultation with an experienced surgeon, like Dr Gavin Kang at Covette Clinic.
There are many different factors that can contribute to ptosis, including genetics, medical conditions that affect the nerves in the eyelid, trauma to the eye or eye socket, and aging. Depending on the cause and severity of your ptosis, different treatment options may be recommended. During your consultation, Dr Gavin Kang will examine your eyelids and discuss your medical history with you to determine the best course of treatment.
One of the most common treatments for ptosis is surgery. Ptosis surgery involves repositioning the levator muscle, which is responsible for lifting the eyelid, to a higher position. This helps to raise the eyelid and improve the appearance of the eyes. The procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia and takes about an hour to complete. The results of ptosis surgery can be quite dramatic, with many patients experiencing a significant improvement in their appearance and vision.
At Covette Clinic, Dr Gavin Kang is one of the few Singapore surgeons fully trained in both adult and children cosmetic surgery. This means that he has the expertise and experience necessary to provide the highest quality care to patients of all ages. Whether you are a child or an adult, if you are experiencing ptosis, Dr Gavin Kang can help you to determine the best course of treatment.
It is important to note that not everyone is a candidate for ptosis surgery. During your consultation with Dr Gavin Kang, he will discuss your medical history and examine your eyelids to determine if surgery is the right option for you. In some cases, nonsurgical treatments, such as Botox injections, may be recommended instead of surgery. Regardless of the treatment option that is recommended, Dr Gavin Kang will work closely with you to ensure that you are fully informed and comfortable with your decision.
