Is there a surgery that could fix the asymmetry in my eyes?
If you were not born with the epicanthal fold then the cause may be due to the pull of the eyebrow( rare but possible)
The raised eyebrow is a compensation for a weak upper eyelid muscle.
You should see a Plastic Surgeon who can assess you in real time.
Correction of the left upper eyelid ptosis will bring the left eyebrow down ( usually takes about 3 months after surgery) . The Epicanthal fold may be reduced if the raised brow is the cause. There are surgical options to get rid of the epicanthal fold but the risk of scarring needs to be considered
I would strongly recommend a physical exam before committing to a particular surgical solution.
Correction of Epicanthal Fold/Brow Asymmetry
What you have is an epicanthal fold (or flap) involving the left eye. That could be improved by an epicanthoplasty, a small skin procedure to help eliminate epicanthal folds. Your eyebrow is a little low and that could be improved at the same time by a one-sided endoscopic brow lift.
