What's wrong with my upper eyelid? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 5
Ptosis left upper lid
Ptosis repair by a skin approach would lift the eyelid margin, bring the fat pads forward, and add to the lid fold creating better symmetry for you. I would recommend an evaluation by an oculoplastic surgeon when you are ready to have this surgically repaired. Best wishes.
It is not a great photo, but it appears that you have ptosis of your left upper eyelid.

You have profound anterior levator dehiscence ptosis.
It is difficult from the photo to evaluate because you are looking down. But it appears that the left upper eyelid has a ptosis(drooping) of the eyelid. The right one looks ok but has some redundant skin, the left one would have this also but because it is drooping it stretches the eyelid. You would need to be evaluated in person with an oculoplastic specialist accurately diagnose the condition and give you treatment options.
