New Technique developed by Indian Doctors to Improve Treatment of Ptosis

The study conducted by eminent facial plastic surgeon Dr. Debraj Shome and researchers at The Esthetic Clinics from India also points out that commonly performed techniques may not yield results which are as good as the new technique.

A new study has shown that outcomes in ptosis or droopy eyelids can be significantly improved by modifying current surgical approaches and performing an additional procedure on the upper lid of the eye. The study conducted by eminent facial plastic surgeon Dr. Debraj Shome and researchers at The Esthetic Clinics from India also points out that commonly performed techniques may not yield results which are as good as the new technique.

The study was carried over a period of 5 years between 2011 and 2016 on 100 patients, with ptosis (droopy eyelid) in one eye, since birth. The surgeries were conducted on 2 groups of 50 patients each with only one group receiving the newly modified surgery, incorporating an eyelid crease.

Dr. Debraj Shome said, "While many surgeries have been performed in the past to rectify ptosis, our technique is unique as it suggests modifying the commonly performed current surgical approaches, to include a carefully crafted eyelid crease. This makes the eyelids look more symmetrical, thereby lending both eyes a more balanced look. Before our research, the surgery for ptosis did not involve creating an eyelid crease which meant that while the eyelid would open wide post the surgery, the muscle on the top would bunch up creating multiple folds. This actually made the operated eye look worse and lowered confidence and satisfaction post-surgery, in patients."

Ptosis can be caused by many factors ranging from natural to more serious medical conditions. Anyone can get droopy eyelids—there are no substantial differences in prevalence between men and women or between ethnicities.
