Brow ptosis and ptosis
Your pe-operative photograph shows evidence of both ptosis of the eyelid and ptosis of the brows, with heavy brow fat pad and lid fold. With this presentation, I generally recommend an external approach to ptosis repair (rather than internal) so that the creases and lid fold can be corrected. However, your lid curvature, level, and contour might continue to improve over the next several weeks. Stay in touch with your surgeon for his/her suggestions for the left eyelid, and for the excess skin. Best wishes.
