Mechanical ptosis, or acquired ptosis, is often caused by any abnormality weighing down, causing your eyelids to droop. This is often a secondary issue due to excess eyelid skin or the forward movement of the brow in the process of aging.
Mechanical ptosis is addressed by a full oculoplastics clinical exam to determine if the eyelids and/or brow are creating this issue. Once defined, the issue is treated by either a upper lid blepharoplasty, an endoscopic brow lift, or even both!
