Heavy Eyebrow Feeling - Eyelid Ptosis or Eyebrow Ptosis?

My eyebrows feel super heavy on my eyelids, making my eyelids feel very heavy. Is it ptosis?. I did have asian eyelid surgery (along with a ptosis repair) about 4 months ago. My brows might have dropped because they feel like weights above my eyes. The only relief I get is when I lift my eyebrows with my hands or tense up my forehead to slightly raise the brows. Then my eyes feel light, very good. What can fix this)? I'm only 19.

Hi Kool,

It appears that your left upper lid rests a little bit lower on your iris than your right lid.  Speak with your eyelid surgeon regarding your concerns and symptoms.  If your surgeon agrees, a small amount of Botox in your depressor corrugators and procerus muscles may relieve your symptoms.  Good luck and be well.
