Frontalis Sling Surgery for Congenital Ptosis
Thank you for your question. Various approaches for the correction of congenital ptosis can be employed by your surgeon. Without the appropriate pictures or an in-person examination, it would be difficult to comment. The possible need for additional surgery to improve the ptosis is not uncommon. The type of surgery depends on several factors, including the degree of ptosis, age, etc. Postoperative dry eyes may be a complication, and the exact approach should be discussed with your surgeon.
