Abstract

There are many methods to correct mild blepharoptosis and create double eyelid creases. However, all prior methods have the disadvantages of prolonged swelling, increased recovery time, and the need for an incision when the ptosis correction is simultaneously performed with double eyelid surgery. The authors have devised a new minimally invasive technique to correct mild ptosis during double eyelid surgery. Our technique utilizes stronger suture methods to create double eyelid folds and simultaneously perform the ptosis repair. The correction of mild blepharoptosis is achieved through the transconjunctival Muller's muscle tucking technique during a non-incisional suture method of double eyelid surgery.
