Frontalis suspension procedure

Frontalis suspension is a frequently used surgical technique to correct moderate to severe drooping of the upper eyelid (blepharoptosis) in the presence of poor or absent levator muscle function. In this procedure, the connection between the eyelid margin and eyebrow is enhanced using a sling-type material as a suspender allowing the frontalis muscle to more effectively elevate the eyelid.
