Why do I have a slight asymmetrical eyes and eyebrow? (photos)

You are Asian so it is normal for your eyes to be a bit heavier than Western eyelids.
So what is going on here? I suspect you have a levator dehiscence in the left upper eyelid. In addition with this eyelid weakness, there is loss of support for the upper eyelid lashes on the left side. These lashes hang down and shade the top of the eye. You need an anchor blepharoplasty at the time of levator dehiscence repair to correct this. The other issue here is the other side. You many need double fold surgery for the right upper eyelid to related a symmetric double fold with exposure of the same amount of upper eyelid platform. It may also be possible to repair the left upper eyelid and allow the fold to hide the upper eyelid platform -that would be a choice made as part of a detailed pre surgical consultation.
You have combination eyebrow and eyelid ptosis of the right side.
