Asymmetry of the eyelids and eyebrows

It appears from your photograph that the right brow is lower than the left. This may cause the lid level to be lower on that side - either ptosis or pseudoptosis. I would recommend seeing an Oculoplastic surgeon for evaluation if you are considering correction of the asymmetry. Best wishes!

Thbat is the sign of ptolsis of the right upper eyelid. it can be repaired with ptosis repair of the right upper eyelid.
