What is Non-Incisional Ptosis Correction?

It is a surgical method to allow covered or drowsy eyes to have a normal eye opening. It is done by pulling the eye-opening muscles (the levator palpebrae superior muscle and Müller's muscle) by approaching from the conjunctiva. It allows proper transfer of eye-opening strength.

This is a complementary method to overcome the disadvantage of conventional incisional ptosis correction. Its characteristics are almost no scar or swelling after surgery as well as fast recovery.
Incisional ptosis correction is needed in cases where skin drooping requires skin incision.
