If you have no issues with excess skin (redundancy) and the ptosis is mild, a posterior approach may be a good option. A conjunctivomullerectomy involves the resection of a small amount of tissue from the underside of the eyelid and will raise the upper eyelid margin position. You can be tested in the office with drops to see if and by how much the eyelid would rise with surgery. It's a nice, predictable procedure. Make sure to see an oculoplastic surgeon who is experienced in this technique. Good luck!
