Incision Ptosis Correction
The muscles used to lift the eyes can become weak causing the upper eyelids to cover part of the eyes. Ptosis correction can correct this by incising the levator muscle used to open the eyes. Droopy upper eyelids can cause a tired appearance and the act of opening the eyes can cause forehead wrinkles.

2. Have tired looking eyes

02.The Utility of Incision Correction
Level of strength and distance are in inverse proportion to each other when the same energy is in effect. When the length of muscle is shortened, the eye-opening power increases
By pulling the muller muscle and fastening it to tarsus, the muscle to open the eyes are improved. After surgery, patients can open their eyes more naturally and even though the surgery is more complex than the usual ptosis its recovery period is almost the same. As there are many variables in performing ptosis correction surgery and it is important to make both eyes symmetric. In serious cases, surgery might need to be redone.
Non-Incision Ptosis Correction
Ptosis refers to the drooping of the upper eyelids. People with ptosis often have difficulty opening their eyes completely. This covering of the upper eyelids can cause the eyes to get tired easily and reduce the field of vision. Ptosis is caused by a weakened levator or Müller’s muscle, which is the main eye opening muscle. To compensate, people suffering from ptosis often unconsciously lift their eyebrows or forehead in an effort to raise the drooping eyelids.
01.How is Non-Incisional Ptosis Correction performed?
This method is recommended for people with minimal to moderate ptosis with relatively thin upper eyelids. It can be performed alone or in conjunction with non-incisional double eyelid surgery to create a natural crease without any scarring. The advantages of this method are a short downtime, no scarring, and a natural-looking result.
