Abstract

A simplified method for ptosis surgery has been used in 33 patients. The levator aponeurosis is exposed by the anterior approach. It is folded or excised and reattached to the anterior surface of the tarsus, matching the level and the contour of the two upper lids. The cosmetic appearance of the lid is improved by the skin closure technique. This method for ptosis surgery meets the anatomical and physiological needs best. It has given very satisfactory functional and cosmetic results.
