How Can Eyelid Surgery Fix Asymmetrical Eyelids?
I am 26 and have had a 'droopy' eyelid since I was born (congential ptosis?). The issue is odd however, the eye only really sags when I am overly tired. The rest of the time my other eye looks like the one with the issue because the eye with excess skin actually goes under the skin. I'm assuming only a small amount of skin is going to be removed, is this common? Is symmetry going to be the main goal? What else should I ask the surgeon I'm seeing in a week?
