Thank you for your question. You should complete the treatment of the chalazion with your board certified surgeon before having another procedure. That said, there is a lot for you to gain by considering the cosmetic approaches to improve the appearance after the chalazion treatment has been completed. I suggest that you move forward and consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
Hello, it appears that you may have ptosis. You should have a consultation with an oculoplastic surgeon to best determine your options. Best of luck!
Thank you for your question. Your left upper eyelid is droopy (i.e. you have ptosis). I would follow up with an oculoplastic surgeon and first determine if there is any remaining chalazion present. The amount of correction required is best determined after ensuring that there is no longer any chalazion or swelling of the eyelid, which can cause mechanical ptosis.

You have left upper eyelid ptosis (droopy eyelid) and may be a candidate for eyelid ptosis repair. See following link and video. See an oculoplastic surgeon.
It appears that you have bilateral levator partial dehiscence with compensatory eyebrow elevation.
If the chalazia affected the left upper eyelid, it is possible that the surgery contributed to the heaviness to the left side. You need a careful assessment by an oculplastic surgeon who can address the ptosis. Most surgeons will be uncomfortable offering you surgery because you have a small degree of asymmetry. Do not let anyone inject fat into the left upper eyelid. That would be a disaster.
Improving the Eyelids
You would benefit from differential fat injection in your eyelids to improve the shape of the eyes and to reduce the asymmetry. You may want to consult a board certified plastic surgeon who understands the concept and can potentially deliver a pleasing outcome.
Asymmetry of the eyes
An examination is important to make the diagnosis. It appears that your left eye is recessed (enophthalmos)... but measurements taken at the time of examination are crucial to obtain prior to making recommendations. Please see an oculoplastics specialist in your area. Best wishes.
Hello and thank you for your question. The
best advice you can receive is from an in-person consultation. With that
being said, based on your photographs, you may be a candidate for ptosis repair. Make sure you specifically
look at before and after pictures of real patients who have had this
surgery performed by your surgeon and evaluate their results. The
most important aspect is to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I
recommend that you seek consultation with a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon
who can evaluate you in person.
Best wishes and good luck.
