Ptosis Correction

Ptosis Correction's purpose is to fix the droopy eyelids.

Ptosis occurs due to the weakness in the muscle of the eyelids that is used for opening the eyes. People with this problem tend to use the muscle of their forehead, and their eyebrow area to support the weak eyelids. However, this causes deterioration of eyesight, astigmatism, and wrinkles on the forehead.

MINA PLASTIC SURGERY’s procedure of Ptosis correction takes about an hour, with local anesthesia.

Clients who have had their ptosis corrected can leave the clinic on the day, after receiving our offered ‘after treatments‘.

The clients are asked to come back to MINA PLASTIC SURGERY clinic in a week, to remove the stitches, get check-ups, and treatments to help the recovery.‍

Recommended to

Ptosis correction is for clients who have sleepy looking eyes, due to their weak eyelids. MINA PLASTIC SURGERY recommends you this procedure if your forehead tends to wrinkle when you open your eyes, or have asymmetrical eyes.

These are the signs that your eyelid muscle is not strong enough to function by itself, and therefore may lead to problems of your eyesight.

As this is a ‘correction’ procedure, it can also fix the failure of your former double eyelid surgery. If you have gotten a double eyelid surgery before but aren’t satisfied with its faint result, Ptosis correction surgery may work for you also.
