Correction of this type of lid lag require understanding of what has caused it and examination of the lid to assure that there is enough looseness to move the lid to a proper position or by releasing the tissues that are pulling the lid down. Often a combination of techniques would be necessary such as lid repositioning, support with a stitch and fat injection and rarely placement of a spacer. You may wish to consult a plastic surgeon who is experienced in this are.
