Müller’s Muscle-Conjunctiva Resection
The Müller’s muscle-conjunctiva resection ptosis procedure is recommended for patients with blepharoptosis whose upper eyelids elevate to a normal level when 10% phenylephrine drops are applied to the upper ocular fornix. Candidates usually have minimal congenital ptosis and varying degrees of acquired ptosis. The advantage over the Fasanella procedure is that Müller’s muscle-conjunctiva resection preserves the tarsus, and the advantage over the levator aponeurosis procedure is that it produces predictable results.
