When Drooping Eyelids Affect Your Sight

Facial plastic surgery isn’t only about aesthetics. Often we perform surgeries that provide functional improvement for patients. In the case of our patient Paula, her drooping eyelids were having a serious effect on her vision.

“Over the years I noticed that my eyelids were drooping and that really started to have an effect on my vision, especially my right side. I had never considered plastic surgery before, but in this case, it was a medical issue. And the insurance company covered the cost of my eyelid surgery.”

After her eyelid lift Paula had noticeable improvement in her vision, especially her peripheral vision, in addition to a fresher more wide eyed look. “I would absolutely recommend, to anybody, a man or woman, to have this surgery done if they are dealing with eyelids like I was. I had no idea that this surgery would make this kind of a difference in my life. Dr. LaPatka really listened to me. When I look in the mirror I can tell that he listened to me and I thank him for that.”
