Ptosis correction surgery

Ptosis correction surgery

Ptosis is defined as drooping of the upper eyelid so that it interferes with vision. The aim of surgical correction of ptosis is to bring the eyelid back to its normal level. It is carried out under local anaesthesia for adults, but general anaesthesia is used for children. A cut is made in the eyelid crease and the muscle and tendon raising the eylid are tightened. The cut is then closed with dissolvable sutures. There is usually no visible scarring after the surgery once the incision has healed over. Possible risks after the surgery are wound infection, over correction, under correction and poor contour.
