Upper lid bleph
Considering Plexr for revision upper lid blepharoplasty
hello, from your picture it is difficult to assess what bothers you more - the mild ptosis, excess upper lid skin fold, or hollow upper eyelids after your blepharoplasty surgery.
It would be useful for you to review your eyelid appearance in youth, to decide what needs addressing.
I would recommend a consultation with an experienced oculoplastic surgeon, to decide the best way forward.
Plexr would address the loose skin folds well, however will not restore the hollow upper lid sulcus or correct the droopy eyelid.

Thank you for your question and photo! It is difficult to give an opinion without a formal consultation. I have not seen the results of Plexr so I can not comment. You do have asymmetry of your eyes- and depending on your concern- a different approach to each eye would be required to create more symmetry.
With Warm Regards

No, Plexr will make you look worse.
Eyelid volume loss vs ptosis
Ptosis repair alone may be enoughto improve upper eyelid hollowness.
Sometimes additional fat grafting may be required. The technique in the eyelids is slightly different from traditional fat grafting, but sub-brow traditional fat grafting may also be helpful.
I have attached links two patient below: one that that underwent both ptosis repair and fat grafting to the eyelids, and a younger patient that just underwent ptosis repair that improved her upper eyelid hollowness.
