What Is Droopy Eyelid Surgery – Ptosis?

When an individual has droopy eyelids, their sagging eyelids start covering the pupils and they look tired or sleepy all the time. Droopy Eye Surgery, also known as Ptosis Eyelid Correction, is a surgical procedure used to lift droopy eyelids. 

What Causes Droopy Eyelids?

The levator muscles are responsible for raising the eyelids and controlling their movement when opening the eye. Eyelids start sagging when the levator muscles get relaxed and begin to lengthen. Our Korean non-incisional droopy eyelid surgery can effectively fix the problem by tightening the muscles and will also create double eyelids in the process.

  • Sagging eyelids that have excess skin
  • Eyes that look tired regardless of any amount of rest
  • Frequent headaches due to overworking of their brows and the forehead muscles to maintain their eyes open
  • Those who want bigger and more awake looking eyes

Types of Droopy Eyelid Surgery Methods

There are two types of surgery methods used for droopy eyelid surgery Singapore. These include the following. 

1. Non-incisional Method


During the droopy eyelid correction procedure, muscle length is reduced by tying a portion of the eyelid muscles using a suture. The reduction in the length of these muscles creates a tightening effect and allows the eyelids to raise higher when opened.

2. Incisional Method

This method is normally used for severe conditions where extensively stretched and lengthened eyelid muscles are trimmed short and pinned upwards. As a result, the eyelids lift higher whenever they are opened.
