Ptosis Surgery

Today is a day I've looked forward to for a very long time. This past summer I was scheduled for Ptosis surgery and today is the day. This is minor surgery that will take care of my droopy eyelid. The doctor doing the surgery says that a virus is probably the culprit and that this surgery will correct what has been an aggravation to say the least.

 When I'm overly tired my left eye is about half closed while my right eye is wide open. Every photograph is awful. That droopy eyelid is all I ever see in any photograph. Below is a video that says it all. I'm only doing the muscle repair, not the removal of fat or a filler. Just so you know.

To say I'm thrilled is indeed an understatement. So if I'm not around very much today or tomorrow you'll know why. Keep your fingers crossed that everything goes well. Thanks!

  4. Good luck to you Sandee. We hope the surgery goes really well. I bet it will feel great not to droop any more. That must be a pain in the butt. Hope it all goes really well.

  13. Oh, good for you! I'll say a prayer for a perfect surgery and surgical result!

    My sister Lynda has that droopy skin stuff but her lid is in the right place. She's been saying for 10 years she was going to get is fixed, but still hasn't and it's getting worse as she gets older.

    Will there be before and after photos? :D

    Big hugs :]

  17. My roommate had the same procedure a while back with good results. Apparently, it's relatively simple and patients seem to be happy with what they get. Hopefully, your eyeballs won't fall out.
