What is Ptosis Correction?

The muscle which is responsible for lifting the upper eyelid is called levator muscle. Ptosis is a condition when the levator muscle is weak so the upper eyelids are drooping. Banobagi Hospital performs a ptosis correction surgery only on needed cases after a thorough medical examination of a patient for determining the best way of correction. Various ptosis techniques are also used here.

Reasonable and Safe Eye Surgery Ptosis Correction

Relationship between the Eye and the Pupil
What is the most important aesthetic factor of the eye? In fact, the pupil is. The entire image of the eye is created by the size and/or location of the pupil. Even if there are no different in eyes size, the position of the pupil itself can give different aesthetic aspects. In general, the bigger pupil is assumed to be better, but your overall image depends on not just the size, but the also shape of the pupil and also the lifting strength of the eye muscle.
Safe Ptosis Correction
Most patients are reluctant to have the ptosis correction due to the cost, time and difficulty of the procedure. However, Banobagi Hospital offers a wide variety of ptosis correction techniques, such as incisional technique, non-incional technique and dual non-incisional technique that would suit your condition the best.

Special Features of Ptosis Correction


Dual Non-Incisional Ptosis Correction

Dual non-incisional ptosis correction significantly reduces a possibility of loosening of the fold, which is the weakness of the non-incisional ptosis correction. Since a surgeon performs the ptosis correction while checking conditions of the muscle, it could be performed along with non-incisional ptosis correction for a patient with weak levator muscles.


Partial Incisional Ptosis Correction

When a patient has weak levator muscles, incisional ptosis correction is required. However, if the levator muscle of only one eye is weak or the levator muscles are slightly weak, incisional ptosis correction could be too much. In this case, partial incisional ptosis correction could be the perfect choice for natural-looking eye without visible scars.


Non-Incisional Ptosis Correction

In case of clinics and/or surgeons performing only incisional ptosis correction, it is possible that they have no other options so they recommend incisional method for every patient regardless the eyes conditions. However, it should be noted that 80% of ptosis patients experience non-severe ptosis so it would be beneficial to undergo the non-incisional ptosis correction in terms of surgical period, cost and scar.
