Özet

Frontalis suspension is a frequently performed procedure for myogenic ptosis with levator palpebra superior weakness. This surgical technique provides appropriate upper eyelid position by establishing a connection between frontalis muscle and tarsus of the upper eyelid. Fascia lata or silicone rod may be used. In these reports, we discuss three cases with blepharoptosis who were treated with silicone rod frontalis suspension surgery, and who developped silicone exposure during follow-up.
