What else can be done after droopy eyelid surgery doesn't take? (photo)

I personally hate full thickness eyelid resection to address residual upper eyelid ptosis.
Repeat ptosis surgery

Scarring from 3 previous operations make it more difficult to predict the results of a 4th.
That said, I suggest you do the following
- contact the surgeon(s) who did your previous surgery and ask for copies of photographs and operative reports.
- Then call the Department of Ophthalmology at the medical school nearest you
- Ask who in the department specializes in childhood ptosis correction.
- see that specialist for an opinion as to what went wrong if anything and if the result can be improved. Best wishes.
