Photographs of before and after ptosis surgery

  • Ptosis can be caused by {the} apneurosis of {the} levator muscle, nerve abnormalities, trauma, inflammation or lesions of {the} lid or orbit.
  • Dysfunctions of {the} levators might occur as a result of a lack of nerve communication being sent to {the} receptors due to antibodies needlessly attacking and eliminating {the} neurotransmitter.
  • Ptosis might be due to a myogenic, neurogenic, aponeurotic, mechanical or traumatic cause and it usually occurs isolated, but might be associated with various other conditions, like immunological, degenerative, or hereditary disorders, tumors, or infections
  • Acquired ptosis is most commonly caused by aponeurotic ptosis. This can occur as a result of senescence, dehiscence or disinsertion of {the} levator aponeurosis. Moreover, chronic inflammation or intraocular surgery can lead to {the} same effect. Also, wearing contact lenses for long periods of time is thought to have a certain impact on {the} development of this condition.
  • Congenital neurogenic ptosis is believed to be caused by {the} Horner syndrome.
  • In this case, a mild ptosis might be associated with psilateral ptosis, iris and areola hypopigmentation and anhidrosis due to {the} paresis of {the} Mueller muscle. Acquired Horner syndrome might result after trauma, neoplastic insult, or even vascular disease.
  • Ptosis due to trauma can ensue after an eyelid laceration with transection of {the} upper eyelid elevators or disruption of {the} neural input.
  • Other causes of ptosis include eyelid neoplasms, neurofibromas or {the} cicatrization after inflammation or surgery. Mild ptosis might occur with aging.
