Elevation of drooped eyelids

Dr. Putterman can perform other corrective procedures at the same time he removes excess eyelid skin and fat.

Droopy eyelids can be corrected by tightening the muscles. One technique to accomplish this purpose is the simple, 20-minute “Muller’s Muscle Resection” invented by Dr. Putterman. When droopy eyelids obstruct vision, this operation can correct the problem. An easy test determines candidates for this technique.
