Significantly Asymmetric Eyes Two Weeks After Upper Blepharoplasty
- Asked by Laura_B in Latvia

Can this improve over the time or should I plan for revision? The asymmetry was visible immediately after the surgery (left eye was significantly narrower than right eye). Also it seems that more fat has been removed from inner corner of right eye than from that of the left eye. Which eye was not done properly? What is the earliest when revision blepharoplasty can be made? As there is very limited number of plastic surgeons in my country, I would really appreciate answers from professionals.
Asymmetry after blepharoplasty
Often asymmetries that patients observe after surgery were present before their operation, but went unnoticed. Any new asymmetry which may be due to the surgery itself should be evaluated for possible correction. Eyelid issues should ideally be addressed by oculoplastic surgeons or ophthalmologists.
It is alway better to wait for complete healing and to let all the swelling subside. This is usually around 3-6 months. Currently what I see is that your upper left eyelid is at a slightly lower level than your right. Also the right eye shows slight more of the white portion toward the corner than the left.
Wait the appropriated time then judge.
