Online Consultation Before and After

What is GNG Ptosis Correction?

  • Ptosis Correction is a procedure for eyes with weak eye opening muscle and skin tissue that cover too much pupils or gives impression of sleepy-looking eyes. The procedure transforms your appearance from sleepy looking to clear and lively appearance. Unlike standard double eyelid surgery, Ptosis correction requires functional and aesthetic improvement of eyes which is why precise diagnoses must be made during consultation and also based on the result of examinations. At GNG, we recommend incisional/non-incisional surgery method depending on patient’s amount of pupil visibility, strength of eyelid muscle and skin.

Definition of ptosis correction depending on individual's condition

  • Non-incisional method

    The eyelid muscle is not too droopy and does not cover too much of pupil.

  • Incisional method

    Droopy eyelid muscle covers pupil which makes it difficult to see.

GNG Ptosis Correction surgery method

The muscle in our body has elasticity just like rubber band. The muscles that help our eyes open are levator palpebrae superioris and Muller’s muscle and if they lose elasticity, it becomes difficult to open your eyes. At GNG, we conduct thorough examinations and consultation with doctor to provide the best surgery method for each individual.

Advantage of GNG Ptosis Correction

Point 1 Improve eye asymmetry

Your eye shape appears more asymmetrical if the strength and the length of the eye opening muscles are different.

At GNG, we analyze the length and strength of muscles in both eyes prior to surgery
to ensure proper improvement of eye asymmetry when the eyes are opened.

Point 2 Prevent wrinkles in forehead and glabella for softer appearance!

If the eye-opening muscle is not strong enough to open eyes completely,
you consciously put more strength to open your eyes wider.
This eventually forms wrinkles in forehead and glabella, and in severe cases is known to cause difficulty in seeing
, reduces vision, causes asymmetrical eye shape, and astigmatism.

GNG Ptosis Correction allows patient to normalize strength of eyelid muscle
to prevent wrinkles, astigmatism, reduced vision and so on and at the same time,
transform your eyes and face to look more defined and bright.

Sedation+ local anesthesia is administered at the same time for patients who feel anxious about pain and anesthesia.

To minimize anxiousness about pain and anesthesia before surgery, GNG anesthesiologist administers light sedation and then local anesthesia to minimize pain and stress from before to completion of surgery.
