Congenital Ptosis Surgery

Unveiling Brighter Horizons

Congenital ptosis, a condition characterized by drooping of the upper eyelid since birth, can impact both the aesthetic appearance and functionality of the eye. Congenital ptosis surgery is a specialized procedure aimed at correcting this condition, restoring symmetry, and enhancing the patient’s visual field.

What to Expect?


Your journey begins with a thorough consultation where our experienced surgeons assess the severity of your congenital ptosis, discuss your expectations, and formulate a personalized treatment plan.

Local Anesthesia

The surgery is typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the patient's age and comfort level.

Incision Placement

Our surgeons strategically place incisions within the natural creases of the eyelid to minimize visible scarring. For mild to moderate ptosis, a conjunctival approach may be used, avoiding external incisions altogether.

Muscle Repair

The surgery involves repositioning or shortening the levator muscle responsible for lifting the eyelid. In severe cases, additional adjustments to the eyelid structures may be made for optimal results.

Closure and Recovery

Once the necessary corrections are made, the incisions are meticulously closed. Patients are then monitored during the initial recovery period, with specific post-operative care instructions provided.

Follow-Up Care

Regular follow-up appointments are scheduled to assess healing progress, monitor eyelid movement, and address any concerns. Our team remains committed to supporting patients throughout the recovery journey.


How long does the recovery process take?

The initial recovery period varies, but patients typically resume normal activities within 1-2 weeks. Complete healing may take a few months, during which follow-up appointments are crucial.

Will there be visible scarring after the surgery?

Our surgeons prioritize minimizing visible scarring. Incisions are strategically placed within natural creases, and for some cases, a conjunctival approach is used to avoid external incisions.

Is congenital ptosis surgery painful?

Discomfort is usually minimal, and appropriate pain management measures are implemented. Patients are provided with post-operative care instructions, including the use of prescribed medications for pain relief.

Can congenital ptosis recur after surgery?

While surgery is highly effective, recurrence is rare. Our experienced surgeons take measures to ensure long-term stability, and routine follow-up appointments help monitor the outcome.

Is congenital ptosis surgery suitable for children?

Yes, congenital ptosis surgery can be performed on children. The timing of the surgery is carefully considered, and our surgeons work closely with pediatric patients and their parents to ensure the best possible outcome.
