Droopy looking eye - Blepharoplasty
Since 2001 in my courses I use to say:"Women in their late thirties have some features changing in their face. The culprit is the receding of BONE surfaces and edges starting the ageing chain reaction.This is responsible in your case of baggy eyelid and tear trough, lost of malar eminence with naso-labial folds and chin deformity.All this could be treated by adipose stem cell injection (FAMI) except upper lids which need 2-3 mm local anaesthesia surgical excision.
Many issues here....
The eyes appear different as a result of the way that the eyelids frame the eyes. The most obvious feature is a left sided ptosis (droopy eyelid). You will need to have this evaluated to determine the cause, but the most likely cause is dehiscence of the muscle that raises the eyelid. Other secondary issues are asymmetric upper lid skin and possible right upper lid retraction.As a first step you will need an assessment by an oculoplastics specialist. It is likely that the ptosis can only be corrected by surgery and you may also be a candidate for blepharoplasty depending on your needs and requirements.
