It will be important to match the lid crease height equally, which may require some skill. Anchoring of upper lid crease with 5-0 or 6-0 clear nylon will be important.
The brow is another item of concern, however, very difficult to correct without scars. Again, your surgeon can best evaluate condition and may suggest coronal brow lift, instead of direct brow lifting.
Small incision anchor sutures are not long lasting, in my experience.

Right unilateral ptosis
By simply looking at the pictures and without knowing your eye medical history, it appears to me that you have right eyelid ptosis which can cause 3 conditions around the eyes.
1) Right eyelid droop causing the right eyelid height to be lower than the left
2) Supratarsal crease to be higher than the left
3) Right brow elevation due to the frontal muscle hyperactivity trying to compensate to raise your ptotic eyelid (neural reflex)
This can be repaired with an unilateral right ptosis repair to raise the right ptotic eyelid. Sometimes bilateral procedure is performed to make sure the left side doesn't come down. A detailed in-office eye exam is warranted to make sure you are the right candidate.
