Blepharoptosis is a drooping or falling of the upper eyelid. Blepharoptosis could affect the appearance, the field of vision and quality of life. The diagnosis and treatment of the blepharoptosis requires a precise preoperative assessment. We have designed the most detailed evaluation table of the upper eyelid ptosis, including the lid slit, MRD1, the ptosis severity, the height of the double eyelid, levator function, etiology and history and other related information to accurately quantify the degree of blepharoptosis. Levator function is the most important key factor in the correction of eyelid surgery, and ptosis severity is an important reference to adjust the shortening distance. We established a variety of treatment principles of blepharoptosis.

Services and Advantages:
Simple levator aponeurosis plication is indicated for blepharoptosis with levator function (> 8mm).
Levator / Müller’s Muscle Advancement is indicated for blepharoplasty with fair levator function (5~8 mm).
Frontalis suspension with traditional technique or with FOOM(Frontalis Orbicularis Oculi Muscle) flap-shortening technique developed by Professor Lai Chung-Sheng was applied for patients with poor levator function (<5 mm). It achieves antagonistic equilibrium with ideal biomechanics by debilitating eye-closing power and enhancing eye-opening power.
