Do I need ptosis surgery left eye?
You have left upper eyelid ptosis (droopy upper eyelid) which causes the same side eyebrow to raise in order to assist lift the droopy eyelid. The solution is left upper lid ptosis surgery. See following link and video. See an oculoplastic surgeon.
Yes you have ptosis.
You also have an abnormality of the lower eyelid with inferior scleral show. One must approach ptosis carefully here do to the risk of corneal exposure. I personally would not address this ptosis with a mullerectomy. You have a hollow upper eyelid with compensatory brow elevation. The hollowness is consistent with a levator dehiscence ptosis. I would seriously consider an anterior approach for this. However, the vast majority of oculofacial surgeon prefer the Mullerectomy for small amounts of ptosis that respond to neosynephrine testing.
