Droopy Eyelids in 2019

Srinivas Iyengar, MD FACS

Course Description: Droopy Eyelids in 2019

Evaluation of a patient with droopy eyelids involves distinguishing between ptosis and dermatochalasis. There are also several causes of ptosis that may be signs of a systemic disease.  We will review the most common causes of droopy eyelids, how to distinguish between ptosis and dermatochalasis, and review the most common procedures to correct droopy eyelids.  We will also review an incision-free, 6-minute approach to ptosis surgery that every eyelid surgeon practicing in 2019 should be able to offer patients.  Dr. Iyengar will also review the most common questions asked about cosmetic eyelid surgery and present a few interesting cases over the last year seen in the San Diego community.
