eyelid correction: ptosis
This patient not only presented with skin excess on the upper eyelids. The position of the eyelid margin was also to low. There was no visual impairment, but the forehead muscles had to be used permanently to keep the upper eyelids in an acceptable position.
Excess skin and muscle were removed from the upper eyelids. The attachment of the muscle that opens the eyelids (levator palpebrae) was shortened. All layers of the eyelids were attached to each other at the level of the natural eyelid crease.
After the operation, with a relaxed forehead, the upper eyelids remained in a normal position.
