What Is Upper Eyelid Surgery? Drooping or sagging lids are caused by loose excess skin, a weak muscle (ptosis), drooping eyebrow or a combination of these. These problems usually occur as a result of the natural aging process, loss of skin elasticity, or excessive rubbing of eyes due to allergies. However, in some cases, droopy lids can be present since birth (congenital ptosis). Upper eyelid surgery helps restore the shape of your upper eyelids. Am I a Candidate for Upper Eyelid Surgery?

Dr. Hormozi’s technique for the upper eyelid surgery involves measuring and removing the precise amount of excess skin and fat and/or tightening the muscle, if needed. If an associated droopiness of the brow is also present, this can be corrected by repositioning the brow through the blepharoplasty incision. Dr. Hormozi closes the skin incision using a one-stitch sewing technique to ensure a clean, smooth scar line, which is hardly visible and fades away quickly!

You may experience some swelling, bruising, irritation, dryness, and discomfort as you heal. How Much Does Upper Eyelid Surgery Cost in Baltimore and Towson?
