Surgery to Fix Asymmetric Right Eye? (Eyelid, Eyebrow & Lower Lid) (photo)

Hi. Im 19, male. I am ONLY bothered with my right eye (***to you, IT'S SHOWN ON THE LEFT***). The eyelid, brow & lower lid are all somewhat asymmetric compared my left eye which I'm FINE with. Already had botox for my r brow but the result wasn't what I was hoping - I want something permanent to make it symmetrical as possible to my left. IS THIS POSSIBLE? It's hard typing everything I'd like to say within this space here so PLEASE read what I've also noted in the collage of 3 photos I attached.

Eyelid asymmetry

You have a complicated issue and it is difficult to assess from your posted photos. You may have upper eyelid ptosis, opposite brow weakness, or other.  See an oculoplastic surgeon for evaluation. Nonsurgical and surgical options are available to make things more symmetric.

It probably is possible, however, this is a very complicated discussion and would require an in depth consultation in person.  See an Oculoplastic surgeon that has experience in these types of problems.
