Eyes asymmetrical and it's throwing off my face. Does this need ptosis surgery or a blepharoplasty? 18 year old female. (Photo)

Your brain is doing it own forhead lift in an effort to see out of these droopy eyelids.
It appears you have bilateral ptosis worse on the right than the left. I would recommend seeing an Oculoplastic surgeon for evaluation of your eyelid measurements and discussion of options for treatment. Best wishes!

Thanks for the question. You mentioned that the entire left side of your face is sagging and your left brow is lower. A full facial picture would help but it is possible you have a left facial weakness. There are many potential reasons for this but this would result in left facial sagging. I would recommend a consultation with an ENT specialist to evaluate the facial weakness before proceeding with any surgical interventions. The right upper eyelid does appear to have some skin redundancy which can be addressed with a blepharoplasty but I would hold off until the facial weakness is evaluated. Hope this helps.
