What is the difference between
ptosis correction and double eyelid surgery?
Non-incisional, double embedding non-incisional, incisional, partial incisional, epicanthoplasty, lateral epicanthoplasty, ptosis correction…
There are fairly many kinds of surgery which are all methods of eye surgery.
Many sorts of ways exist just to improve eyes.
Let’s talk about ptosis correction today!
The basic form of double eyelid surgery is non-incisional or incisional method
which make eyes bigger and clearer.
It means the saggy upper eyelids,
and people with it open their eyes using also the forehead muscle.
It’s usually told ptosis
when upper side of pupils are covered by eyelids
even after the eyes are fully open.
If you have to use forehead muscle
that eyes are not widely open just with using eyelids,
that’s the typical symptom of ptosis.
Maybe the one with ptosis might not feel discomfort that much,
but eyes with pupils covered by eyelids always look sleepy, exhausted, and sad.
A lot of people may think
double eyelid surgery would be the solution for this.
The answer is NO!
No matter what surgery it is,
finding the basic cause and resolving it instead of simple treatments
lead to steady beautifulness!
In the case of ptosis,
it’s the matter of the muscle helping opening eyes,
which is called ‘muscle levator palpebrae superioris’,
so ptosis correction which controls tension of this muscle is required.
Just making lines through double eyelid surgery doesn’t solve this muscle problem,
so ptosis correction is essential.
Then, let’s get in details now.
There is non-incisional ptosis correction
as well as incisional ptosis correction.
As you can recognize from the name,
incisional ptosis correction is
to incise skin and correct the eyelid lines.
This is for a lot droopy eyelids which make heavy ptosis.
What is non-incisional ptosis correction?
It’s to control the tension of muscle through very small holes
as for double embedding method or partial incisional one,
for clearer eye shape even though muscle tension is not weak.
Both of ptosis correction and double eyelid surgery can be done together
depending on individuals.
Now, do you understand the difference
of ptosis correction and double eyelid surgery?
