Is ptosis surgery suitable for me?

I have attached some photos of my eyes looking in different angles it looks like I have a ptosis issue in the left eye (right in the image). In some photos I take it is extremely noticeable to me and even feels a heavier when I concentrate on it. You can also see in the images I have a small flap in the corner of the same eye but have no idea why or what it is. I don't mind my hooded eye lids, I actually kind of like them but the lazy eye gets to me. Is surgery suitable for me and is it painful?

Ptosis Surgery

Thank you for your question.

Looking at your pictures I do see some hooding of the left Upper Eyelid, Ptosis is not very clear. The hooding as well as ptosis are both correctable. I would advise seeking a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in your area who can evaluate you and suggest options. 

All The Best.
