A 19-month-old girl with bilateral congenital ptosis and abnormal head posture underwent a bilateral frontalis sling procedure. As the needle was directed through the submyocutaneous tunnel, its tip (eye) snapped. When the needle was withdrawn, the tip was missing. The problem was addressed and the procedure was completed.
