Thieme; 2019. doi:10.1055/b-006-163725Comment: External ptosis repair is a crucial tool in any ophthalmic plastic surgeon’s practice. It is used when a patient requires elevation of a ptotic eyelid to improve superior visual field defects or even cosmesis of a droopy lid. As with any surgery, there are primary indications and advantages to this approach, but one must also be aware of the contraindications and disadvantages. Preoperatively, a surgeon must analyze the lid height, etiology of the ptosis, and also the patient’s preferences for the end result. This chapter will highlight all of the above, as well as the operative technique, what to avoid, and other tips for successfully utilizing external ptosis repair surgery.
