What is an EnigmaLift Ptosis Correction?
Dr. Chesnut’s EnigmaLift ptosis correction is a complex surgical procedure used to correct upper eyelid volume loss and ptosis. Many patients who have undergone a previous eyelid surgery may no longer have their nasojugal fat pads, which limits the options for restoring eyelid volume and correcting ptosis. In that situation, the EnigmaLift may be the most practical treatment method.
During an EnigmaLift ptosis repair surgery, Dr. Chesnut will utilize a temporal fascia graft to cover the patient’s concave deformity. He will then create a tent, restructure the upper eyelid, and add volume to the area using a specialized fat transfer process. Once the structure and volume of the upper eyelid have been corrected, Dr. Chesnut will carefully lift the position of the lid to open up the eye.
