What is Non-Incision Ptosis Correction?

Korean eyelid surgery Non-Incision Ptosis Correction is a procedure that corrects ptosis (so-called ‘sleepy eyes’) without any incision. Traditional method used incisions for ptosis correction, but today, sleepy eyes can be fixed by adjusting the muscle without making incision.

Since incision is not required, there’s no scar or swelling, and the recovery time is shorter compared to traditional ptosis correction surgery in Korea. You don’t have to worry about unwinding eyelids as we fix them tight through multiple points and knots to create defined eye lines. However, this method is not suitable for severe ptosis, but it’s recommended for mid-level ptosis and asymmetrical eyes.

Grasp the cause of ptosis (sleepy eyes)

The causes of ptosis correction is due to the muscle itself or damaged nerve or injury from an accident. The cause needs to be accurately identified in order to correct this problem; therefore, it requires detailed pre-operative testing and examinations and consultation with a specialized surgeon. If eyelid muscles are normal but sagging skin is the reason that create sleepy look, double eyelid surgery itself can improve the issue.

What if only double eyelid surgery is performed without ptosis correction?

“It may result in even smaller eyes with unnatural eyelids. In this case, ptosis correction must be performed with accurate cause analysis in order to achieve a successful result.”

Ptosis correction through non-incision method

Unlike the traditional method, incision is not made and we perform surgery that shortens the length of muscles by tying certain parts of the eyelid opening muscles via inserting threads inside. If the length of the muscle becomes shorter, the power of eyelid opening becomes stronger which results in bigger looking eyes. Most of all, patients can go back to their daily routine quickly and get natural results as incision is not required.

Step 1

We create a knot on the eye-opening muscle by inserting threads from outside to inside.

Step 2

By tying a knot, we fix it tight to create a natural double eyelid from the inside.

Step 3

It makes the eyes look bigger as the length of eye-opening muscles becomes shorter


Existence of eyelid specialist surgeons

Especially in the case of ptosis correction, the surgeon needs to check the eye opening levels during the surgery. However, this level is easily misjudged due to topical anesthesia; thus, the surgeon’s experience is highly important. If the surgeon does not have much experience, ptosis correction may reoccur, resulting in revision surgery. The surgery has to be performed by surgeon with a lot of experience since ptosis correction is considered to be the most complex surgery among existing eyelid surgeries.

What is Incisional Ptosis Correction?

Ptosis refers to eyelids that excessively cover the eyes and make you look tired or sleepy. This is caused by weak muscles that are used for opening the eyes, and it can be fixed by creating defined eye lines through ptosis correction. By adjusting the strength of the muscle, ptosis correction makes your eyes larger and defined, and it requires detailed and close technique since it adjusts the muscle deep inside the eyes.

Normally, 80~90% of pupil is visible, but an eye with ptosis has eyelid that covers the pupil, and it can make you look sleepy or tired. In this case, ptosis correction surgery that adjusts eye muscle can make your eyes look defined.
