The goal of medical, or functional, eyelid ptosis surgery is to position the eyelids in their appropriate position. If the eye's levator muscle is lax, it's tightened; if the levator muscle is separated from the eyelid, it's reattached. Ptosis surgery is usually done while patients are awake so they can blink, and open and close their eyes, to give the surgeon a good approximation of how the eyelids should be properly positioned.For a cosmetic eyelid droop, a plastic surgery procedure is performed to lift the eyelid; drooping skin and excess fat can be removed from the upper and lower lids. This can be done while patients are either awake or under anesthesia. The procedure lifts and evens out the eyelids, and can also improve bagginess or puffiness under and around the eyes.
