More About Non-Incisional Droopy Eyelid Correction Surgery

Many people born with small eyes can also suffer from drooped eyelids, or can begin to experience some difficulty opening their eyes later in life due to ageing. Medically referred to as ‘blepharoptosis’, which means that the eyelids are partially or extensively covering the iris, this can be due to genetic, ageing or other non-congenital factors - 30 per cent because of genetics and 70 per cent due to ageing or other factors.

Testing the strength of the muscle used to lift the eyelids– the levator – is crucial to establishing a diagnosis for blepharoptosis and this is usually done during a face-to-face consultation. Ptosis correction is recommended as soon as possible because this condition can affect the person’s vision and interfere with their daily activities. Droopy upper eyelids not only look unappealing, but when left untreated for a long period of time, they can potentially have a negative impact on one’s eyesight including lazy eye or astigmatism.

Surgical Method

A thread is fixed to the levator – the muscle used to lift the eyelids.

The thread tightens and strengthens the levator which is responsible for lifting the eyelids.

Eyelids can regain part of their ability to lift and the patient’s eyes appear naturally bigger.
