Abstract

Postoperative upper lid asymmetry is a common problem following ptosis surgery. Recently we performed multiple ptosis operative procedures to correct lid asymmetry in the management of a patient with bilateral acquired upper eyelid ptosis. The patient's eyelids were corrected successfully after five procedures. We retrospectively reviewed the treatment of this patient with unsatisfactory results. The medical literature was reviewed for further insight into the common problem of reoperation after ptosis surgery.
