Lateral Canthus Lifting via Serdev Suture
The technique for lateral canthus lifting is useful in cases of low lateral position of the eye or large round eyes, “scleral show” in thyrotoxicosis, as well as after blepharoplasty. These problems could be congenital, acquired with age, or due to operations such as blepharoplasty, incorrect facelift or after removal of tumors.
For example, in the case of the first picture below, the lateral canthus is lifted to normal position. Additionally, the surgeon can place a eye bulb after leveling both eyes.
The suture lifting method of Prof. Dr. Serdev for stable fixation of tissues, using special needle instruments allows for attachment of the lateral canthus of the eye to the orbit periosteum, without cutting and separating skin. The surgeon and the patient plan the angle together.
It is an outpatient procedure, under local anaesthesia. The result is durable. Patients can resume their social life on the day after surgery.
