My Eyes Are Shaped Differently. Will the Unevenness Be Fixed if I Get Eyelid Surgery? (photo)

Ptosis repair during upper blepharoplasty

Your right upper lid appears ptotic (lower than your left upper lid).  Correcting this ptosis while creating symmetric upper lid creases will greatly improve the appearance of your eyes.

A symmetric double eyelid procedure will need to include ptosis repair

You have some droop of your right eye (ptosis) which will need to be corrected at the same time as the asian eyelid surgery in order to obtain a symmetric result. The asymmetry can be worse after surgery if the ptosis repair is not performed at the same time.

Right upper eyelid ptosis

You have subtle right upper eyelid ptosis [droopy eyelid] which makes your right eye seem slightly smaller than the left eye.

Ptosis repair will improve this asymmetry, but will increase the amount of upper eyelid fold on the right eye a bit. As such, you may also need a slight amount of skin removed from the upper eyelid, with lid crease reformation sutures to ensure that your double eyelid remains intact.

Only if your surgeon properly diagnosis and addresses the issue.

Your photo shows right upper eyelid ptosis.  You may also have some degree of the left upper eyelid ptosis.  You need both double fold surgery and ptosis surgery to make the situation better.  If only double fold surgery is performed, you will look even more uneven.
