Problems after posterior ptosis correction
photos are not revealing. I assume you had a mueller muscle resection. if so you would be advised to see an ophthalmic plastic surgeon to be advised of your options.
You need anterior levator ptosis surgery.
Unfortunately, posterior approach ptosis surgery is very popular. It is popular because it is a reliable and reasonable predictable surgery. However, in my opinion, it is far from ideal in the presence of a disinserted levator aponeurosis tendon. Surgeons often say, well if the Muellerectomy does not work, you have not burned any bridges. That is not exactly true. The scaring that develops after the Muellerectomy makes the revisional anterior approach surgery very difficult. You need to heal a full year. I suspect that you will have to travel to get the surgical result you are looking for.
