I Had a Lower Blep on 5/12/11. I Have Suffered Atrophy on the Left Eyelid.

Can this be corrected without further surgery?

"A picture is worth a thousand words" and would determine ways to correct the atrophy or assymmetry. This could be due to too much fat or skin being removed.

A photo would be useful.  If you referring to fat atroph (hollowness) after lower blepharoplasty, then there are filler injections that can help.

Lower Eyelid Atrophy?

Sorry but  your question doesn't make sense to me.  Atrophy?  Are you talking about ectropion or hollowness?  Can you be more specific or include photos?
