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
