Ptosis Surgery Cost and Procedure Guide

Ptosis (pronounced toe-sis) is the medical name for drooping of the eyelid. Generally caused by weak eyelid muscles, ptosis surgery helps to correct the eyelid movement by shortening the muscles and/or connecting the eyelid to the muscles in the brow. This short surgery can drastically improve a patient's sight and address any physical discomfort and emotional distress caused by ptosis.
