A 62-year-old male presented with double upper lip and blepharochalasis of both the eyes. Ptosis was evident in both the eyes with edema in the left eye. His visual acuity was normal. A double upper lip giving a classical cupid bow shape was present. Furthermore, the lower lip was bulky and lax. He had normal thyroid function with no goiter. He was diagnosed with partial expression of Ascher's syndrome, which is a rare entity of unknown etiology. The patient was reassured of the benign nature of the condition. No surgical correction was done as it did not cause a functional problem. This case is reported for its rarity as <100 cases have been reported worldwide.
