eyelid correction: ptosis
This is no aesthetic surgery, although it clearly does improve the appearance of the eyes. Ptosis is a condition in which the small muscle, that lifts the upper eyelid, weakens or gradually becomes detached from the eyelid margin. The skin fold above the eyelid border disappears, the upper lids look hollow, the eyelid border sags over the pupil and the eyebrows have to be raised as much as possible for vision. In this operation under local or general anaesthesia, the muscle is reattached better on the eyelid margin and the natural skin fold is restored.
