Could this be surgically fixed?
If you are complaining about dropping of the eyelids or lower eyelid bagginess then you might be a good candidate for the Laser Blepharoplasty operation. Although the plastic surgery era is highly developed and there are new treatment models for several other procedures; there is still no efficient alternative of blepharoplasty operation. If you are not comfortable with the look of your eyelids blepharoplasty operation may be a solution for you
Left eyelid ptosis
Thank you for your photo and questions. From the photos, it appears you have left upper ptosis (eyelid droop). The surgery should be able to correct your problem, but there are some minor risks (overcorrection, undercorrection of the lid sag, persistent asymmetry of the eyelids, infection, pain, Hering's Reflex, scarring, and vision changes are some of the risks). In general these risks are minor and the benefit of your surgery should outweigh the risks. But be sure to have a consultation with an experienced Plastic, Facial Plastic, or Oculoplastic Surgeon who routinely performs ptosis surgery. Good luck!
