Ptosis surgery and recovery question. Assymetry in lid position; is this normal?

Uneven eyes day of surgery
A photograph would be invaluable to advise you.
Now if the operated eye is actually correctly position but the good eyelid is now heavy, that is a different kettle of fish. This is Herring's law ptosis. Generally this is something that can be identified before surgery and that often prompts a recommendation to have bilateral upper eyelid surgery even when only one eyelid is apparently droopy.
I recommend that you call your surgeon and bring these concerns to their attention and see what he or she has to say. Consider reposting with photographs so we can be more helpful.
