We report a case of floppy eyelid syndrome (FES) treated with surgical approach at the PUC Campinas Hospital in 2019. This was a retrospective case report. A 42-year-old male patient diagnosed with FES. The patient elected for surgical repair due to severity of his symptoms. A lateral pentagonal upper eyelid resection was performed in the left eye, and eyelid tissue from the patient was examined using light microscopy and immunohistochemistry that revealed chronic conjunctival inflammation and papillary conjunctivitis. The pentagonal wedge resection is an effective treatment method that produces immediate relief of symptoms. In our case, no recurrence was observed up to 6-month follow-up.
