What is Eye surgery?

Eye plastic surgery is divided into two types: double eyelid surgery, which makes the eyes larger and clearer, and anti-aging surgery. In order to complete beautiful eyes and maximize the effect, double eyelid surgery, ptosis correction, canthoplasty and transconjunctival fat repositioning can be performed together as needed. Anti-aging eye surgery includes endoscopic forehead lift, subbrow lift, upper blepheroplasty, and lower blepheroplasty(undereye bag correction).

What is Ptosis Correction?

Blepharoptosis is a condition in which the upper eyelid droops due to a weakness in the levator muscle, which lifts the upper eyelid.
In this case, the eyelids cover the pupil, obstructing vision and giving the appearance of tiredness and sleepiness. If the blepharo ptosis is severe, forehead wrinkles are likely to form because the forehead muscles are used to open the eyes, and the eyelids cover the pupil, which impairs vision, so ptosis correction is recommended.Non-incisional/incisional surgery may be recommended depending on the degree of power to open the eyes.



80% to 90% exposure to black eyes

Ptosis correction (Incision method)


Design following a doctor’s consultation right before surgery


After removing extra skin and fat, a double eyelid crease that fits the desired height is created.


Pull the levator muscle, which opens the eyes, to suture the crease.


Bright and dazzling eyes are completed.

Ptosis correction (Non-incision)


Design following a doctor’s consultation right before surgery


A double eyelid crease that fits the desired height is created. (after some fat removal)


The muscles that open the eyes are pulled together to form a line after knots and naturally occurring adhesion wounds are made between the muscles and skin through 5 to 12 holes.


Bright and dazzling eyes are completed

Recovery Process


What If I Only Get Double Eyelid Surgery Without Ptosis Correction?

When only double eyelid surgery was performed

Performing double eyelid surgery without correcting the ptosis tends to lead to unsatisfactory results because the exposure of the eyes is not altered. Additionally, there is a chance that the double eyelids will unravel easily due to the disconnection between the skin and the eye elevating muscle and they may end up as static folds.

When combining double eyelid surgery and ptosis correction

When double eyelid and ptosis correction are performed together, the exposure of the pupils is increased by lifting the levator muscles, resulting in lively and clear eyes, as well as a static natural double eyelid crease(dynamic fold) that does not unravel.

Types of Ptosis Correction Procedures

01. Incisional ptosis correction

  • If you have thick eyelids and a lot of fat
  • A clear double eyelid crease
  • Eyes that appears older due to less eye exposure
  • In the case of (moderate to severe) weak eye-opening power



02. Non-incisional ptosis correction

  • A natural double eyelid crease
  • A smooth crease with no scarring
  • Sleepy and droopy-looking eyes
  • If the ability to open the eyes is slightly weak



03. Double eyelid ptosis correction

  • A single eyelid crease emphasizes your unique charm.
  • Without an incision, surgery is performed through a small hole.
  • Sleepy and small-looking eyes

Double eyelid surgery involves creating an artificial crease above the eyes via incision or non-incision, whereas ptosis correction involves improving the ability to open the eyes regardless of the crease. 

Rarely, the eyes are not closed because of side effects, but if you have a lot of swelling in the beginning, you might occasionally feel that your eyes are not closed, but this problem goes away with time. 

This is not possible for two reasons. The first reason being that if the Ptosis procedure is solely undergone. A small incision is made on the eyelids during the procedure. This causes irregular adhesions on the eyelids, resulting in unwanted wrinkles on our eyes. Thus the right approach would be to control the adhesions while creating and designing our double eyelids so they match you correctly and beautifully in the most natural way. The second reason is most people with Ptosis have sagging skin that covers the pupils, and by combing the double eyelid surgery we can retract and add tension to the right amount of skin to maximize eye exposure. 

Although it can be roughly determined by how much of the pupil is exposed, seeking professional advice is the most accurate way to determine if you have ptosis or not. 

It is not necessary to do it all at once, and it is best to choose a surgical method that is appropriate for the patient after diagnosis and consultation with a specialist.
