Eyelid Surgery: Q&AAsk a Question
Im 27 and I had a congentinal ptosis since I was born. 2 weeks ago, I had my 1st ptosis surgery for my right eye using frontalis sling silicon rod method. I know it's too early, but my downgaze is looking very weird and not asymmetrical with my left eye. Would this be as permanent result? I already informed my doctor about my concern and he asked me to wait for another 3 months. Should I undergo for another surgery? Is this over corrected?
Congenital ptosis is caused by an abnormal eyelid muscle.
Sling for ptosis
These surgeries are far from perfect.
