Abstract Children with severe congenital blepharoptosis are at risk of developing amblyopia. For this reason, ptosis repair is indicated as soon as the diagnosis is made. Frontalis suspension of the upper lid is an effective and simple method of treatment. This study reports on the long-term outcome of frontalis suspension surgery for congenital ptosis using autogenous sling material. Twelve children with severe congenital ptosis underwent frontalis suspension surgery using autologous fascia lata or temporal fascia. The results were assessed with a mean follow-up period of 8 years. Eleven children had good or excellent functional and aesthetic results. There were no cases of recurrence or overcorrection. Frontalis suspension using autologous material is a harmless procedure, which does not alter the upper eyelid structures. It is an effective procedure in the long term. In our opinion, it is the technique of choice to treat young children with severe congenital ptosis. Copyright (c) 2009. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
