What is Ptosis Correction?

Ptosis Correction creates large and distinctive eyes

Blepharoptosis means droopy upper eyelids due to nerves or myasthenia gravis that cover certain parts of the iris. Some people have naturally droopy eyelids and others have saggy eyelids from aging.
Not only do these eyes appear sleepy but also long-lasting droopy eyes make people use their forehead muscles to open up eyes so that they gradually develop forehead wrinkles and headaches.
By pulling eye-opening muscles upward, sleepy and shaggy eyelids can be revitalized to become refreshed and vivid eye shape.

  • 06We recommend that you take a bath and wash your head on the day before an operation. You must remove makeup and wash your teeth on the day of surgery. In addition, you must remove your contact lenses, any accessories, nail polish, and pedicure.
