The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery published an interesting article about eyelid surgery.
By Amelda Jacobs
I suppose I should have seen it coming. Ptosis, a drooping or falling of the upper eyelid is apparently a genetic thing in my family. My grandfather on my momâ€™s side had ptosis, my mother had ptosis, and by the age of 38, I was its next victimâ€¦ along with my older sisters.
At first, people were telling me that I looked tired, asking if Iâ€™d gotten enough rest the night before. Of course I had, but one of my eyelids was telling a very different story, despite 8 hours of consistent sleep. I dealt with it for a while, but about 2 or 3 years later, I really started to notice a significant change. The one lid was now drooping so low, that it almost appeared to be closed â€“ and with the other one wide open, I basically looked like a Cyclopsâ€¦ not exactly what I was going for. The unsolicited comments from others had escalated, and I could see the concerned expressions even on the faces of those who chose not to mention it.
