What kind of cosmetic surgery can be done to rectify the asymmetry and overall droopiness of both my eyelids? (photo)
10 months ago
I'm 23 years old and I've been wearing glasses since I was 12 because I'm short sighted and my glasses prescription is quite high and I also wear contacts. I've noticed a lot over the years, that my eyelids have been quite uneven and droopy. I think I have a form of ptosis as you can see from the photos below-my eyelids can appear droopy and uneven. Is it possible to get a combination of ptosis and blepharoplasty- to get a more permanent, natural and defined eyelid crease that is even and symmetrical?

A common proceedure we perform is Asian or Oriental blepharoplasty.
This operation can open up the eyelids and make more symmetrical double eyelid folds.
A careful asseesment as to how much droop and how much fat needs to be made before surgery by a highly experienced blepharoplasty surgeon.
The surgery is outpatient and takes about a week to recover usually
