Ptosis is a very common eyelid disorder, and yet may be quite challenging both diagnostically and therapeutically. Due to a certain degree of inherent unpredictability regarding eyelid position, ptosis surgery requires surgical revision more often than many other periocular procedures. Often such touch-ups may be done in the office within one to two weeks after surgery. There has been some evolution in ptosis surgical techniques over the years, while major advances in ptosis management have taken place in the area of molecular genetic diagnosis.
