There are various methods to correct mild ptosis and to make a double fold. However, all pre-existing methods have similar disadvantages, such as long-lasting swelling and down time. Recently, many patients prefer more convenient and minimal invasive methods with faster recovery. So we have devised a new technique to correct mild ptosis. Our technique is very similar to other non-incisional stitch methods. We try to correct ptosis through Muller's muscle tucking using the non-incisional stitch method. We think this method could be applied to mild degree ptosis. We hope to report the long-term follow up data of our cases and analysis with more efficient technique in the near future.
Key Words: Blepharoptosis, Eyelid surgery, Stitch method, Muller's muscle tucking
