Timing of surgery
In general, the optimal treatment time is between three and five years old. If the ptosis of the situation is more serious, in order to prevent the occurrence of children with amblyopia and head back to the extension of the deformity and so on, then the operation should be about one year ahead of time. If the congenital ptosis accompanied by other eye diseases, such as eye fissure syndrome and so on, have staged operation. After canthoplasty forming surgery, about half a year after surgical treatment of ptosis.
The surgical procedures were as follows: shortening of levator palpebrae superioris and frontalis muscle fascial flap suspension.
Shortening of levator palpebrae superioris is mainly applied to both sides of the congenital ptosis. There is a certain degree of function of levator palpebrae superioris. The levator muscle lifting technique is mainly applied to moderate or severe ptosis of congenital or secondary nature. At present, we use the modified frontalis muscle fascial flap suspension, the effect is satisfactory, and the trauma is small.
In general, ptosis after the palpebral fissure can not be completely closed, so be careful protection, daytime eye drops, eye drops at night to prevent corneal injury. 1 - 3 months after the symptoms will gradually reduce with time and improve postoperative quiet and comfortable environment should rest, after 1 weeks of not watching TV, newspaper, bed rest is best semi recumbent position (the pillow booster), so as to avoid eye fatigue or head position is too low and aggravate the wound swelling. Be sure to clean up the wound. Don't eat like aspirin like drugs after surgery, otherwise it will aggravate the wound bleeding.
