Asian eyelid surgery to create a single fold
Asian eyelid surgery to create a single fold Your issue is very common. In particular multiple or asymmetric island folds accounts for approximately 25% of my Asian eyelid surgery procedures. And your particular case you want to create an eyelid crease that is natural. You will require an anchoring technique via and incision. Using the Botox for your jaw usually works well as long as you don't have too much fat or soft tissue of the face. If you inject Botox into the jaw with the face is very full sometimes it can actually make you look older. You simply need a physical exam to answer all your questions best.

Eyelid Folds, Dark Circles, Botox for Masseter Muscle
Excision of a conservative amount of skin with fixation of the eyelid crease should correct this issue.
Botox to the jaw muscle works nicely to correct asymmetric muscles.
Dark circles may be improved with a filler and skin bleachers.

Be careful of how to treat these problems.
It seems that your eyelid folds in different ways, depending on time of day and whether or not your eyes are fully open, and this may help decide if you want to have an Asian blepharoplasty. An in person evaluation is needed to help guide you on making this decision. Sometimes, the eyelids may not look as good after a blepharoplasty so you should be very careful in making this decision.
As for the dark circles under the eyes, this would also require an examination of the lower eyelids and cheeks. In most instances, I think that injecting the tear trough injection is not a good idea. Most of the time, improving cheek volume with Sculptra may be the right choice.
I would advise you to see a board certified plastic surgeon, who has experience in treating these problems. Good luck!
Multiple eyelid folds, dark circles and asymmetric jaw
Hello, thanks for your question and photos. For the multiple folds, an Asian blepharoplasty could correct that and would give you a crisp single crease on both eyelids. Dark circles are tricky. You may benefit from conservative HA filler injection to the tear troughs (my preference is Belotero) and perhaps try using an eye cream that has hydroquinone/kojic acid/ VitK. As for the jaw asymmetry, Botox to the masseters (jaw muscles) is an option, but it'd be best for you to consult a board certified plastic surgeon for an in-person evaluation. Good luck!
