Eyelid Crease Asymmetry
Hi. Greetings from the UK! Yes I quite agree with Dr Steinsapir's opinion in that you've got evidence of bilateral upper lid aponeurosis dehiscence where the main tendon which lifts your eyelids up and down is starting to split and detach off its attachment to the tarsus (main cartilagenous structure within the eyelid) . You can this this specifically in YOUR right upper lid with multiple (some discontinuous) skin creases and what appears to be a high dominant crease on YOUR left. You'd probably do well with a simple blepharoplasty, skin crease reformation +/- levator aponeurosis repair which normally we'd do under local anaesthetic.
