Müller’s Muscle-Conjunctival Resection (MMCR) Blepharoptosis Repair

First described by Putterman and Urist in 1975 as a modification of the Fasanella-Servat procedure, which includes the excision of 3mm tarsus, MMCR is another posterior eyelid ptosis repair technique which spares the tarsus. Obviously, the advantage being that tarsus is saved, possibly for use in later procedures if needed, the tarsal Meibomian glands remain undisturbed, and it maintains the normal eyelid contour.
