Thank you for your questions and pictures. An Upper Blepharoplasty can correct excess skin and fat on the upper and lower lids and often times help patients achieve a more "even" look. Best of luck!
Blepharoplasty for uneven eyes
For the less common patient who has brows that are in the correct position and yet has excess skin and muscle in the upper eyelid area, an upper lid blepharoplasty with supratarsal fixation is all they need. Should they in addition have lowering of the upper eyelid over the cornea then they may need ptosis surgery. I would recommend visiting an eye doctor should you feel this is the case for you.
Should you have a combination brow ptosis or sagging and excess upper eyelid skin, do yourself a favor and get the brows done first and the eyelids done 3-6 months afterward. That is the approach I take and the majority of patients that I see get the brows done and are happy, they leave the upper lid alone. More is not always better. For those who decide to proceed with an upper lid bleph afterwards, I can be more precise doing it secondarily.
See a plastic surgeon that specializes in facial aesthetic surgery, get two to three opinions and go with the one you feel most comfortable. Experience is great teacher so typically find someone with a few years under their belt!
It appears from the picture that you have a combination of excess upper eyelid skin and drooppiness of the brows.
I have lectured to plastic surgeons on these procedures. Upper eyelid surgery removes excess skin and fat.. An endoscopic brow lift elevates the brow.
Endoscopic brow lift is a minamally invasive operation. It is performed thru small incisions with the use of a TV camera. I helped to pioneer the surgery. Recovery is quicker versus more tradional techniques.
I hope you find this useful.
