Options for Correcting Asymmetry After Lower Blepharoplasty?
I had lower Blepharoplasty (with external incisions) 4 1/2 months ago. It appears that some skin was removed only from the left side, so now my left lower lid is higher, and my right eye looks rounder and bigger. I didn't have any asymmetry before. I don't have any bags anymore, just wrinkles, and a remaining small malar mound or festoon on the left cheekbone. I'm 55 with good, thick, smooth skin, and no other really objectionable wrinkles or problems.
Options are available to attempt to make the eyelids more symmetrical
More skin removal for rounder eye
Correcting asymmetry from Blepharoplasty can be difficult
It's complicated but not impossible to fix
Need a good examination with operative records present
