As long as you’re seeing an oculoplastic surgeon for ptosis repair, you’re on the right track. All these doctors seem to have good credentials. One thing you can do to get a better understanding is to ask to see pictures of someone with a similar congenital ptosis that they have repaired. Or, sometimes you can even ask to speak to a patient they have treated for the same condition.

Congenital ptosis repair is not a simple procedure.  You are correct in attempting to seek a qualified expert.  I do not know either of these individuals personally but both seem to be well qualified.  Avoid going to anyone who promises you a perfect result.]

Go to the person that you feel comfortable with - consult with both and choose the one who you feel is experienced and able to do your revision.  Both of the doctors look like they have excellent credentials.  I don't know of any oculoplastic surgeons in Singapore so I can't give any recommendations on a particular doc.  Good luck!
