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.
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.

The choice of ptosis correction method depends on how severe the condition of the eyelids are.
There are two types of surgery methods used for droopy eyelid surgery Singapore. These include the following.

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.
