PTOSIS

What Is Ptosis?

Ptosis is a drooping of the upper eyelid. Ptosis,if present since birth is called congenital ptosis. In children, the most common cause is improper development of the levator muscle, the major muscle responsible for elevating the upper eyelid. With adults, it may occur as a result of aging, trauma, or muscular or neurologic disease.

Ptosis can affect one eye or both eyes. Ptosis may be present at birth, or it may develop later in life. In most cases of congenital ptosis, the problem is isolated and does not affect the vision. Any ptosis that develops over a period of days or weeks can signal a serious medical problem and needs further  neurologic and physical evaluation.

 What are the Symptoms of Ptosis?

The most obvious symptom of ptosis is noticeable drooping eyelids and an obscured field of vision, but there are often additional factors that individuals can monitor –Ptosis sufferers will often unintentionally stop reading ,simply because it has become a struggle to keep their eyelids open. The levator will fatigue from overstrain after a few minutes of reading if extra effort is needed to keep the eye open. Another symptom of this condition is the need to keep one’s chin elevated in order to see effectively. By keeping the chin up, one can continue to see out of their affected eyes quite well, despite the effects of ptosis. Issue of ptosis may begins to negatively affect their lives to such an extent that it begins to cause behavioural changes.

Treatment

If age-related ptosis blocks your vision or seriously affects your appearance, a plastic surgeon usually can correct the problem by surgically raising your eyelid. During ptosis surgery, eyelid-lifting muscle (levator) is tightened. In severe ptosis, when the levator muscle is extremely weak, the lid can be attached or suspended from under the eyebrow so that the forehead muscles can do the lifting. Following the administration of a local anaesthetic, an incision is made in the upper eyelid crease (if present) and the levator muscle is identified, tightened, and reattached to the tarsal plate.

Adult ptosis treatment

Your ophthalmologist will determine the cause of the ptosis and plan the best treatment. If treatment is necessary, it is usually surgical. Sometimes a small tuck in the lifting muscle and removal of excess eyelid skin (called blepharoplasty) can raise the lid sufficiently. More severe ptosis requires reattachment and strengthening of the levator muscle.

Eyelid ptosis surgery is a more technically challenging operation than blepharoplasty surgery (removal of extra eyelid tissue) and should only be performed by plastic surgeons.

RHINOPLASTY” (NOSE JOB)

Nose is most important structure of our Face & beauty nose is an organ of breathing.

Had Cleopatra’s nose been a few millimetres shorter the history of the world would have been different. A deformed nose draws attention to your face that cannot be compensated for by any amount of make up or jewellery.

2 “RHINOPLASTY” (NOSE JOB)

Rhinoplasty is as much art as it is science and you need to put your faith in the right artist to get results that make you healthy and happy. Rhinoplasty can reduce or increase the size of your nose, change the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between your nose and your upper lip caused by birth defects or injury Rhinoplasty is any cosmetic surgery to the nose. Most commonly, the procedure reshapes and resizes the nose. In some instances, rhinoplasty may also correct breathing problems. The procedure often alters nose size in relation to the rest of the face, the width of the bridge, the appearance of humps or depressions, the position of the nasal tip, the size of the nostrils, and asymmetry During rhinoplasty, the surgeon makes incisions to access the bones and cartilage that support the nose. The incisions are usually made inside the nose so that they are invisible after the surgery.

Depending on the desired result, some bone and cartilage may be removed, or tissue may be added (either from another part of the body or using a synthetic filler). After the surgeon has rearranged and reshaped the bone and cartilage, the skin and tissue is red raped over the structure of the nose. A splint is placed outside the nose to support the new shape of the nose as it heals.
