Excess skin after mullerectomy
It appears you have significant excess skin on both upper eyelids. This can be addressed with an upper eyelid blepharoplasty. However, it your post-operative photos, it appears that you still have fairly significant ptosis, worse on the left than on the right. This suggests that the mullerectomy was not successful in correcting the ptosis. In fact, your ptosis looks worse after surgery than prior to surgery. If this is the case, you will need not only an upper eyelid blepharoplasty but a repeat ptosis repair, best from the anterior (front) surface of the eyelid. As there will be scarring in the plane of the muscle which controls your eyelid opening, you should seek an experienced oculoplastic surgeon who will be able to handle this more complicated case. Good luck!
If your photos are properly labeled, you are in trouble.
