How to correct asymmetrical brows
I would not recommend a blepharoplasty as this could hold the brow lower. Your very pretty young lady and I hesitate to recommend surgery. However if you do choose to have surgery then an endoscopic brow lift is the most likely procedure to correct the problem to see.

Treatment options for droopy eyebrow or eyelids in younger patients
Droopy eyebrows can happen in anyone, regardless of age. While cosmetic surgery for the eyebrow is more common for "older" patients with sagging skin, a brow lift may be appropriate for select younger patients too. First, however, patients with droopy eyes should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist to help determine possible non-cosmetic reasons for the asymmetry. Here is an example of an endoscopic brow lift in a younger patient, without any upper eyelid surgery. She looks less "angry" and rejuvenated by elevating the eyebrow. Lastly, Botox is an alternative to surgery to try to elevate a droopy eyebrow too. Speak with a specialist to help determine appropriate options for you.
