Drooping Eyelid (ptosis) Correction Surgery In Dark Skin Prone To Scarring By Dr Amiya Prasad, MD, New York, New York (10065)

Any type of eyelid surgery performed on people with darker skin needs to be carefully done by an eyelid surgeon experienced with darker ethnic skin. Darker skin is more prone to scarring and pigmentation from surgery, so careful consideration needs to be made for even more specialized surgeries like ptosis correction which is performed exclusively by oculofacial/ oculoplastic surgeons.  (May 16, 2016)
