You do not have eyelid ptosis or brow ptosis that warrants any surgical correction. You have a very mild asymmetry and I believe the risk any procedure outweighs the benefit. I would not recommend any surgical procedure. If your eyebrow asymmetry bothers you, sometimes botox can be used to shape your eyebrows, and make them more symmetrical but again the risk is that there will be more asymmetry after the injections. So I would not recommend that but it is an option.

Thank you for the photos. Your perceived asymmetries are so minor that I did not even notice them until you brought attention to it. It is well within the norm. Your are a very good looking young lady and should not be so self critical. Work on improving your self confidence by reading self improvement books.

Thanks for the question.  Facial asymmetries are very common.  Yours do not appear to be significant aesthetically on initial view.  I would not recommend any intervention to correct the eye asymmetry you are seeing.  It is very important to know that most faces that you would recognize have some element of facial symmetry.

85% of people have visible facial asymmetries. You have some very minor differences between the two eyes that is not easy to appreciate until your photos are studied. Your asymmetries are not something that is "noticed" when I first look at your photos, so other people are not noticing this difference, only you. I can tell you to not worry about this, but I know that's not easy. These differences are extremely minor. Overall, you have a great look and I feel you should have confidence about your appearance.
