Do I need to get surgery on my eyebrow/eyelid? (photo)
Doctor Answers 2
Your photo suggests a ptotic, or droopy, right eyelid with compensatory elevation of the right eyebrow. Ptosis of the eyelid may be congenital, or associated with aging, trauma, or previous surgery. Ptosis repair is a surgical procedure to elevate the eyelid, and is performed for both cosmetic and functional (vision-limiting) reasons. Seek out an experienced Oculoplastic surgeon for your evaluation and discussion of treatment. A good place t start is on the website for the American Association of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Good luck!
Be sure to see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for an in office consult. It is difficult without a face to face exam to tell you exactly what can be done. Based on your photos, you may be able to use a small amount of Botox to even out your brows and give you a more symmetrical look. Best of luck!
