Unilateral ptosis - can it be corrected?
You do appear to have right upper eyelid ptosis (greater than left). You should be a candidate for eyelid ptosis surgery. See an oculoplastic surgeon for evaluation.
This is not unilateral ptosis.
This is bilateral upper eyelid ptosis. You need a detailed personal consultation with a surgeon who knows how to perform aesthetic ptosis surgery. You use your eyebrow to help open the eyes. This is called brow compensation. With ptosis surgery, the brows should relax to a more normal position.
