Double Eyelid Surgery - Toronto, ON

I had undergone double eyelid surgery about 4 months ago and the eyelids looked uneven the moment stitches were taken out. My right eyelid seemed bigger and very unnatural looking, my surgeon said this was due to the steri-strips that had been left post-surgery and the eyelids would even out later on. After 2 months I did see a big reduction in swelling in both eyes and the surgery scars slowly fading but my right eyelid fold was still larger in comparison to the left and gave me a lazy eye look. Today at 4 months I notice the fold of my right eyelid is still much larger and in certain angles does not fold completely near the medial side of the eye. My eyes look very uneven, could this be a problem with the muscle of the eye or the healing process?

Your eyes are so big! Which doctor did you go to?

I agree with Marja -- no one notices until you point it out, and then only if we really study your eyes. Almost all people will see what I saw immediately -- that is, you have GORGEOUS, strikingly beautiful black eyes! Very pretty! :-)

Hi, I looked at your picture before I read your story and I thought 'nice job!' In other words: I didn't notice the unevenness. Only after reading the story I took another look and I thought 'well, if I look very precisely, yes then I see a small difference, but nothing out of the normal asymmetry everyone has. We always look at ourselves with much more detail and criticism than we would look at others. I think you look great!
