Pearls for Müller’s Muscle-Conjunctival Resection-Ptosis Procedure Combined with Upper Blepharoplasty

  • Allen M. Putterman

Abstract

The Müller’s muscle-conjunctival resection ptosis procedure is a relatively simple means of relieving upper eyelid ptosis in patients whose upper eyelids elevate close to a normal level when phenylephrine drops are placed in their upper fornix.1, 2, 3 Although the procedure is fast to perform, there are pearls to know and pitfalls to avoid in order to achieve optimal results.
