What is GNG Ptosis Correction?
Ptosis Correction is a procedure for eyes with weak eye opening muscles and skin tissue that cover too much of the pupils or gives an impression of sleepy-looking eyes. The procedure transforms your appearance from sleepy looking to a 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 examination results. At GNG, we recommend the incisional/non-incisional surgery method depending on the patient’s amount of pupil visibility, strength of eyelid muscle and skin.
Ptosis correction method depends on the individual's condition
The eyelid muscle is not too droopy and does not cover too much of the pupil.
The droopy eyelid muscle covers the pupil which makes it difficult to see.
GNG Ptosis Correctionsurgery method
The muscle in our body has elasticity just like a rubber band. The muscles that help our eyes open are the 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 consultations with the doctor to provide the best surgery method for each individual.
Non-incisional Ptosis Correction
A micro hole is made without incision to insert a thread to adjust the levator palpebrae superioris, tarsal plate and Muller’s muscle to shorten the length of the droopy muscle.
Thread goes through levator palpebrae superioris and Muller’s muscle
Muscle length is reduced and fastened on the tarsal plate. It is then sutured.
Incisional Ptosis Correction
An incision is made on the eyelid to bring forward the levator palpebrae and Muller’s muscle to excise the excess amount and firmly fasten the muscle.
Levator and Muller’s muscle is brought forward and excess muscle is removed.
Skin, levator and Muller’s muscle is sutured
Advantage of GNG Ptosis Correction
Point 1 Improve eye symmetry
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 symmetry when the eyes are opened.
Point 2 Prevent wrinkles in the forehead and glabella for a 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 the forehead and glabella, and in severe cases is known to cause difficulty in sight,
reduce vision, create an asymmetrical eye shape, and cause astigmatism.
GNG Ptosis Correction allows patient to normalize the strength of the eyelid muscle
to prevent wrinkles, astigmatism, reduced vision and so on. And at the same time,
the eyes and face will be transformed 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.
GNG Ptosis Correction Recommended CASES
1 You wish to improve your appearance aesthetically and not look sleepy
You use forehead muscles
to open your eyes
The strength of your
eye-opening muscle is weak.
You want a defined eye shape
that does not wind.
GNG blepharoplasty offers thorough post operation care!
Regardless of the type of surgery, the result of it will differ depending on the type of after care services offered post operation. At GNG, we offer de-swelling treatments after blepharoplasty to promote quick recovery.
Infrared Ray Treatment
Infrared Ray Treatment
Infrared Ray Treatment helps enhance circulation in the skin, ease pain, relive inflammation and protect against oxidative stress.
It penetrates deep up to 40 mm beneath your skin to promote cell growth and effectively help with cuts, bruises and treatment of illnesses.
Most swelling naturally subsides as time goes, but depending on patient’s physical constitution, swelling may last longer
At GNG, we provide de-swelling injection to promote good circulation of blood to subside swelling quicker.
Heat/cold pack provided
Heat/cold pack provided
GNG Hospital provides complimentary heat/cold pack for better after care at home.
The heat pack helps increase supply of nutrients to damaged skin tissue to relive inflammation and prevent bleeding. It also soothes muscle that was tensed up during surgery.

Usage of the HEPA filter ventilation system in all operation rooms.
What is a HEPA filter ventilated operation room?
The air outside the operating room is filtered cleanly by the HEPA filter and circulated inside.
Because air is circulated by providing clean air through a positive pressure system, you don’t need to worry about infection caused by air pollution thus having surgery with confidence.
Also, there is an air-shower system that shakes off contaminated dust before entering the operating room. We strive to do our best in preventing infection through sterilization and thorough infection control of all medical devices.
Be rest assured! GNG’s operation rooms are meticulously clean.
