Its been about 4 and a half years since I had the levator resection. From this surgery I gained strength in the muscle witch I didn't previous. From gaining strength in my eyelid would that increase the chances of getting an even better result from a second surgery? Lifting my lid doesn't engage my eyebrow muscle. I added 6 photos to hopefully aid in your answer. Thank you.
Not sure I should get another ptosis surgery or the distance between lids. Told there was 1mm after levator resection. (Photos)

Persistent ptosis on the left
If your levator function is normal on the left, then there is an excellent chance of improvement with repeat surgery by an Oculoplastic surgeon who is experienced with ptosis repair. An external/skin approach is optimal. There is no need to accept this degree of asymmetry! Best wishes for a successful second procedure.
Revision eyelid ptosis surgery is possible
Revising a prior upper eyelid anterior levator resection ptosis surgery is challenging.
