Cao Lanh, Vietnam--Dr. Ian Wilson, Interplast volunteer plastic surgeon
This is 32-year-old Le, who was born with a condition known as congenital ptosis. She was never able to open both her upper eyelids fully. In order for her to see she had to tilt her head backward every time. This has really impaired her life up to now.
Today, she underwent surgery where a spare tendon was used to suspend her eyelids to her brow muscle. Now, Le can open her eyelids by raising her eyebrows. Her mother is delighted that her daughter has a normal appearance and can begin to enjoy the things that she missed out on so far.
