As an aesthetic clinic, we have had many patients come to us with complaints of droopy eyelids. This condition, also known as ptosis, can be caused by a variety of factors such as ageing, trauma, or medical conditions. But regardless of the cause, one thing is for sure – it can really affect one’s appearance and confidence.
Ptosis is defined as drooping of the upper eyelid margin, which can be caused by a variety of different things. In some cases, it may be due to natural ageing, as the skin and muscles around the eye begin to weaken over time. This can result in a tired and aged appearance, making you look older than you actually are.
But aside from the aesthetic aspect, ptosis can also cause functional problems such as difficulty seeing. The droopy eyelid may obstruct your vision or cause eye strain, which can greatly impact your daily activities and quality of life.
Ptosis is caused by a variety of factors, which may include natural ageing, trauma or injury to the eye area, and medical conditions such as diabetes or thyroid disorders. It can also be purely aesthetic, resulting from excess skin or fatty tissue in the upper eyelid.
The most common type of ptosis is actually aesthetic, meaning that it does not impair vision or cause any other functional problems. However, it can still have a significant impact on one's appearance and self-confidence.
Symptoms of ptosis may include difficulty seeing due to the drooping eyelid, as well as a tired or sad expression. It can also cause headaches and eye strain, especially when trying to compensate for the droop by lifting the eyebrows.
Fortunately, there are now many non-invasive treatment options available in Singapore that can provide excellent results with minimal downtime or risk. These treatments not only improve the appearance of droopy eyelids but also help to correct functional problems caused by ptosis.
One of the main benefits of non-invasive treatments for droopy eyelids is that they require minimal downtime. Unlike surgery, which can take weeks to recover from, these treatments usually have little to no downtime and you can resume your daily activities immediately.
They also carry less risk compared to surgical options. While surgery may provide permanent results, it also comes with potential risks and complications such as scarring and infection. Non-invasive treatments are generally safer and can still provide long-lasting results with proper maintenance.
With so many options available, it can be overwhelming to choose the right ptosis treatment for yourself. As an aesthetic doctor, I always recommend consulting with a qualified professional who can assess your individual case and provide personalised recommendations.
It is also important to do your own research and understand the potential risks and benefits of each treatment option. Consider factors such as cost, downtime, and expected results to make an informed decision.
If you are considering any form of treatment for your droopy eyelids, it's important to consult with an experienced aesthetic doctor first. They will be able to assess your condition and recommend the best course of treatment for you.
It's also important to note that not all ptosis cases are the same, and what works for one person may not work for another. A good aesthetic doctor will take into consideration your individual needs and expectations before recommending a treatment plan.
At Cienna Aesthetics, we always emphasise the importance of a holistic approach to ptosis treatment. This may involve a combination of non-invasive treatments, lifestyle modifications, and even surgical options for long-lasting results.
