Droopy Eyelid (Ptosis) after Double Eyelid Surgery

This young woman had double eyelid surgery performed in a beauty saloon by a visiting China “doctor” . Postoperatively she noted the right eye to be droopy in the medial two third of the upper lid. She returned to the “doctor” and was reassured that it will correct itself in a few months. But the droopiness persisted. When she returned to the beauty saloon, the owner of the centre told her the “doctor” would not return and asked her to see the new visiting “doctor”. The later told the patient that she was unable to correct the droopy eyelid and asked her to seek help in “proper” medical centre. On examination, she appeared to have damage to the medial 2/3 of her levator aponeurosis. Posterior conjunctivomullerextomy was performed with good outcome (bottom picture taken at one month postoperative).
