It is hard to comment without knowing the diagnosis or reviewing the photos. My guess is you had ptosis and in my opinion since you had surgery in your childhood, there is developmental asymmetry. Please post some photos for a clear understanding.

  It is so difficult to answer questions like these without knowing what has been done before and without seeing photos of how you look now.  There are doctors who specialize in eyelid surgery who almost certainly can help you.  Good luck.

If you can, I would travel for a second opinion.

If you can safely travel to Israel, consider seeing Morris Hartstein, M.D. who practices in Herzliya Medical Center just north of Tel Aviv.  There are other oculoplastic surgeons in the middle east of course.  The American Society for Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery maintains a website with an international directory on their website.
