Ptosis Surgery (adult)

Ptosis Surgery (adult)

From £3,301.00

Ptosis surgery is an operation to tighten the muscle that lifts your upper eyelid.



The operation is usually performed under a local anaesthetic. The operation usually takes 45 to 90 minutes, depending on whether the operation involves both of your upper eyelids.

Your surgeon will usually make a cut on the natural skin crease of your eyelid. They will place stitches in the levator muscle to strengthen its attachment to your eyelid and to adjust the height of your eyelid.
