Wide Nose Bridge What is Ptosis Correction?

Ptosis Correction creates large and distinctive eyes

Blepharoptosis means droopy upper eyelids due to nerves or myasthenia gravis that covers 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.

02. Non-incision Ptosis Correction

JW’s non-incisional ptosis correction creates vivid and refreshed eye shapes without incisions


Non-incisional ptosis correction is operated simply by muscle readjustment through conjunctiva by flipping the eyelid. Without an incision that makes an artificial double eyelid line, a natural-looking eye shape can be built.

Through non-incision ptosis correction, the iris will appear vividly. Additionally, through the correction of eye muscle, patients would use less eyebrow and forehead muscles. In this way, wrinkles around the eyebrow and forehead would reduce.

  • 02. Functional effect by blepharoptosis correction
  • 03. Satisfaction with both vivid eye shape and aesthetic aspects
  • 04. Satisfactory operation results without revision surgery


Non-incision Ptosis Correction is recommended to:
  • 01. Those who have weak eye-opening muscles so the eyelids cover the iris
  • 02. Always-sleepy eyes
  • 03. The eyelids always cover the iris which gives the appearance of a tired look
  • 04. Those who need blepharoptosis correction with double eyelid line operation
  • 05. Those who have concerns about scarring after an operation

02. You must stop taking any medications that might disturb hemostasis (oral contraceptive pills, hormonal drugs, vitamin E, aspirin, etc.) at least one week before an operation. If you are currently receiving treatment for high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, or thyroid disease, you must inform your doctor in advance.

03. Cigarettes may cause phlegm, sneezing, or bleeding after an operation. We strongly recommend that you stop smoking for two weeks before an operation.

04. A serious cold may reduce your trachea and respiratory functions. Please inform your doctor in advance if you happen to be suffering from a serious cold on the day of surgery.

05. Bring clothing you can easily change into without irritating the surgical sites, such as a shirt or a big T-shirt.

06. We 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.




Wide Nose Bridge Cautions after Eye surgery


01. You can wash your face with water from the day after the stitches are removed. You may take a shower but should refrain from using a sauna or a public bath.

02. You must take the medications on time as prescribed by a physician and refrain from taking aspirin or hormonal drugs.

03. Refrain from smoking or drinking, which may delay your recovery, for at least four weeks after an operation.
