Non-Incisional Ptosis Surgery From A Professional Singapore-Based Team
Many people born with small eyes can also suffer from drooped eyelids, or can begin to experience some difficulty opening their eyes later in life due to ageing. Medically referred to as ‘blepharoptosis’, which means that the eyelids are partially or extensively covering the iris, this can be due to genetic, ageing or other non-congenital factors - 30 per cent because of genetics and 70 per cent due to ageing or other factors.
Testing the strength of the muscle used to lift the eyelids– the levator – is crucial to establishing a diagnosis for blepharoptosis. Ptosis correction is recommended as soon as possible because this condition can affect the person’s vision and interfere with their daily activities. Droopy upper eyelids not only look unappealing, but when left untreated for a long period of time, they can potentially have a negative impact on one’s eyesight including lazy eye or astigmatism.
Suitability for ptosis correction surgery
Patients may be considered to be a candidate for ptosis correction surgery if they exhibit any of the following:
- Drooping of the eyelids due to genetically small eyes
- Experiencing difficulty opening eyes later in life due to ageing
- Half-closed eyes due to the weakened eyelid muscle
Advantages of Dream Plastic Surgery’s non-incisional procedures
- No scarring as there is no incision
- Surgery time is extremely short. As a result, patient experiences less swelling and faster recovery compared to other methods
- As with the burial method of upper blepharoplasty, natural lines of double eyelids are created
A thread is fixed to the levator – the muscle used to lift the eyelids.
The thread tightens and strengthens the levator which is responsible for lifting the eyelids.
Eyelids can regain part of their ability to lift and the patient’s eyes appear naturally bigger.
