Possible Levator Muscle Injury from Eyelid Surgery?
I had upper eyelid surgery on both eyes on June 25th of this year. My right eyelid is not opening all the way when I look up or out to the side. When I raise my eyebrows, my entire right eye pulls up. The left eye is not having any of these problems. Also, I have raised scars on the outside of both of my eyes.
Could my doctor have injured the levator muscle in my right eye, or possibly extracted too much fat, causing a ptosis effect?
