I'm 18 now and I always had pitosis. Both my eyes. I always felt like I have to push up my eyes/eyebrows. One eye is worse than the other. I love my eyes when I make them wide and stuff. I like the shape of my eyes. When I look into the before and after pictures the eyelid looks really weird after... I don't want it like that I want my eyes to still look pretty but I don't want to have pitosis.When I see the afters it looks like there is a huge eyelid space. I don't want that, No pictures needed
Ptosis Since 8? Bothering Since 13.

If you decide to explore this further, I would recommend consultation with an ASOPRS trained Oculoplastics surgeon. You can find one close to you on the ASOPRS dot org website.
Congenital ptosis can be corrected
If you noticed this at a young age, you were likely born with the condition. When it is greater than 2-3 mm, surgical correction is needed in the form of either Muellerectomy or Levator aponeurosis repair. The Muellerectomy procedure offers less of a correction but is generally more natural looking and doesn't create a bigger lid space. I would consult an Oculoplastic Surgeon in your area for an opinion. Don't be afraid to correct this, as it will progress slowly as you get older. -Dr. G.
A photo is necessary to better evaluate your problem. Ptosis surgery may be the answer. See an oculoplastic surgeon.
