Ptosis surgery gone wrong? (Photo)

Ptosis Surgery Recovery
Did you have both upper eyelids worked on? Based on the pre-operative photograph, it appears the right upper eyelid had a poorly defined crease with ptosis, which has been corrected in the second photograph. The left upper eyelid, which had a more defined crease and better position, seems lower. Sometimes, bilateral ptosis can be masked due to overcompensation and brow use. Either way, the left upper eyelid seems like it will need surgery and/or revision depending on what was done initially. I would suggest waiting a few months before revising as eyelid position can continue to fluctuate the first 2-3 months after surgery.
Unhappy with results following ptosis repair
Thank you for sharing your problems. Although the right upper eyelid looks better, the left needs correction. See an experienced Oculoplastic Surgeon for in person evaluation and guidance. Good luck,
Low eyelid, asymmetric skin crease.
This definitely will not get better by itself. Its not a question of if, but when you will need a revision procedure. I would suggest waiting at least 3 months. Asian eyelids are more complex to deal with, so I can't say exactly what you will need without examining you and discussing your goals, but you are likely to need a combination of levator advancement, skin excision and skin crease reformation. I would say that you should do well if you have an experienced oculoplastic surgeon perform the correction.
