Ptosis Correction

 


What is Ptosis Correction?

 

The aim of surgery is to treat the ptosis by lifting up the drooping eyelids back to its normal position. This is usually done by tightening the muscles that contract when raising the eyelids. If ptosis is severe, the eyelid can be conjoined under the eyebrow, and allow the forehead muscles to raise the eyelid.


Mild ptosis may cause the eyelid to slightly droop, which can affect appearance but have no significant impact on one’s vision. However, severe ptosis can cause vision impairments by blocking the upper region of the eyes. This will eventually end up in causing fatigue to the eyes and even visional problems if severe. Like the double eyelid surgery there are 2 method of surgery types of which can be conducted. The Incision and Non-Incision are the 2 methods for the Ptosis Correction surgery. Ptosis Correction may also be referred to as the Levator Surgery.

Operation Methods


Incisional Ptosis Correction


Eyelid Surgery

Incisional Ptosis Correction is a type of blepharoplasty that creates incision lines across the surface of the eyelids to correct the shape and size. This procedure is usually performed to correct thick eyelids with excessive adipose tissues, or to correct sagging & droopy eyelids. Incising skin and strengthening the muscle that open the eyes will make the pupil more well-defined.

 

Who is it Recommended For?

  1. For those who have upper eyelids covering their eyes
  2. For those who have tired looking eyes
  3. For those who have half opened eyes

   

Features of the Ptosis Correction Incision Method

 

The muscles involved in opening or lifting the eyelids can become weak, causing the eyelids to partially cover up the eyes. Ptosis Correction can modify this by incision of the levator muscle used to open the eyes. Ptosis Correction by using the Incision or Non-incision method will be determined upon consultation based on the patient's requirements.


With the Ptosis Correction, one’s eyes will be able to look clear and bright. Squinting eyes can be corrected. Another advantage is that the thick looking eyelids become slimmer and more natural.

Non-Incisional Ptosis Correction


Eyelid Surgery

The muscles involved in opening or lifting the eyelids can become weak which cause the eyelids to partially cover the eyes. Ptosis Correction can correct this by incising or suturing the levator muscle used to open the eyes. Droopy upper eyelids may cause a tired looking appearance and forcefully opening the eyes may cause wrinkles on the forehead. Ptosis Correction through the Incision or Non-incision method will be determined upon consultation based on the patient's requirements.

 

Who is it Recommended For?

  1. For those who have half-closed eye appearances.
  2. For those who have minute change or dissatisfaction even after having double eyelid surgery
  3. For those who desire to have clear and vivid pupils.

   

Features of the Ptosis Correction Non-Incision Method

 

The Non-Incision method is recommended for those with minimal to moderate ptosis with relatively thin upper eyelids. This procedure does not use incision, but instead uses minute openings to correct the muscles and eyelid. It can be performed alone or together with non-incisional double eyelid procedures to create a natural crease without any scarring. The advantages of this method are short downtime, no scarring and natural results.
