Does ptosis surgery leave a permanent mark on the eyelid?
Ptosis surgery scars
- In a Levator Advancement, a skin incision is made, the muscle is found and reconnected to the eyelid. The incision is in the lid cease, so it is usually well hidden, and generally not bothersome once it heals. You really only see it when you are closing your eyes and specifically looking for it.
- In a Mullerectomy, the incision is on the inside of the eyelid, so you don't see it at all.
