Midface lift / brow lift starts to droop with age will the right higher side catch up with the left side lower side?

Without knowing when you had your surgery, impossible to give you any kind of accurate information. Asymmetrical healing is totally common. One side will often be more swollen than the other. It can take anywhere from 6 months to a year for the swelling to fully subside. Assuming that you haven't met the 6 month mark, be patient. If, at that time, you are still unhappy with your results then schedule an appointment to see your surgeon. Hope this helps.

- If too much fat was removed from one upper lid, your face is unlikely to self-correct in time.
- Generally it is better to have fat transplanted to the eye if there is significant hollowing
- But without before/after comparison photos, one can't know if this advice is right for you.
Obviously without pictures its impossible to say what might have gone on but if fat has been removed it can certainly be put back or be replaced. Ask your operating surgeon as I am sure they would want to know you are not perfectly happy. Hope that helps. Adam Goodwin
