Ptosis Correction

What is Ptosis Correction?

When the muscles responsible for opening the eyes in the upper eyelids become weakened, it can create a sleep look to the eyes.

The weakened eyelid muscles cause the following:

  • Sleepiness to the eyes
  • Eyes tiring very easily
  • Wrinkles on the forehead
  • Worsening eyesight 

Ptosis correction lifts the droopy upper eyelids and solves the above problems.

This procedure is recommended, if you:

  • Have sleepy, tired-looking eyes
  • Do not have existing Double eyelids 
  • Have problems opening the eyes
  • Have a wrinkled forehead due to very weak opening eye force
  • Undefined eyelid

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do I have to receive Ptosis Correction with Double Eyelid surgery?

A: No, it's optional. If you would like to create double eyelid lines, then you should receive Ptosis correction and Double Eyelid surgery together. If you would not like to have double eyelid lines, you just get Ptosis Correction surgery only.

Q: Does Non-incisional Ptosis Correction have a higher chance of releasing?

A: No, Non-incisional Ptosis Correction reinforces the opening eye forces. So, it is not easy to be released.

Q: Does Ptosis Correction create double eyelid lines?

A: No, the Non-incisional Ptosis Correction does not create defined double eyelids.

However, Ptosis Correction surgery can enlarge the size of the eyes effectively by removing unnecessary fats and muscles in the eyelids.

Q: Who is a good candidate for Non-incisional Ptosis Correction operation?

A: Most cases can be corrected with Non-incisional Ptosis Correction. However, if the soft tissues on the upper eyelids are too thick, or you would like to make your double eyelids smaller or larger by Ptosis Correction, Dr. Choi would recommend Incisional Ptosis Correction.

Facts about this procedure

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will I have noticeable scarring after Alar Reduction? 

Generally, people do get scars around the mouth and nose after the operation. However, at Answer Plastic surgery, we use our ultra-fine equipment when suturing to minimize the scars. Over time, the scar will become unnoticeable.

 

Q: When do people get Nostril Reduction?

When people do not have enough alar tissue cells, it is difficult to have an alar base surgery. In this case, those who have large nostrils often choose to reduce their nostrils.

Q: In which cases is alar lifting recommended?

Alar lifting is recommended for those whose have droopy alars. When the alars are sagging compared to the nasal column (the section between the nostrils), nostrils seem to be exposed. By lifting the alars, the amount of exposure can be reduced.
