Blepharoptosis, commonly known as ptosis or eyelid droop, presents significant aesthetic and functional challenges. The rise of Botox-induced blepharoptosis has necessitated refined techniques and comprehensive management strategies by healthcare providers. At Fulcrum Aesthetics in Chicago, patient care begins with thorough consultations to discuss potential risks and benefits, fostering informed decision-making.

Clinical Director at Fulcrum Aesthetics, Brittony Croasdell, emphasizes the importance of precise injection techniques to mitigate the risks associated with Botox-induced ptosis. “This precision is particularly crucial around the levator palpebrae superioris muscle, responsible for eyelid elevation,” she explains.

Proper anatomical knowledge and experience are essential to prevent complications. “Every patient’s condition is unique, and so should be their treatment plan,” Croasdell adds.

Fulcrum Aesthetics has become a leader in ptosis treatment, attracting patients from across the United States and internationally. The clinic’s reputation for excellence in managing complex ptosis cases, particularly those induced by Botox injections administered elsewhere, has positioned it as a premier destination for such treatments.

For those with eyelid ptosis induced by Botox, the complication extends beyond solely aesthetic concerns, potentially impairing vision and causing emotional distress, underscoring the need for specialized care.

In a recent publication in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, Croasdell and colleagues demonstrated an effective treatment approach for Botox-induced ptosis. “We have effective ways to manage it and provide relief to our patients during the recovery period,” Croasdell explains. She may prescribe oxymetazoline (Upneeq) eye drops to temporarily ameliorate ptosis by stimulating Müller’s muscle, another elevator of the eyelid, or treat other areas of the pretarsal orbicularis oculi muscle (the one that is used in winking) to enhance the eye’s ability to open.

Dr. David Hill, Fulcrum Aesthetics’ Medical Director and Croasdell’s husband, specializes in addressing ptosis resulting from other causes, like aging, trauma, or genetic predisposition. He evaluates the need for surgical interventions such as blepharoplasty or ptosis repair surgery, offering patients permanent solutions to eyelid drooping attributable to structural issues.

“Surgical intervention can provide a lasting solution for those affected by ptosis due to anatomic factors,” says Dr. Hill. “Our goal is to restore both form and function for our patients.” Dr. Hill’s meticulous approach ensures that each procedure is tailored to the patient’s unique anatomical and aesthetic needs, achieving both functional improvement and optimal cosmetic outcomes.
