Drooping upper eyelids after lateral brow lift
I used to be a big fan of lateral brow lift but I feel that the results are subtle at best. The longevity of the lift is many times short-lived and very subtle which of course can lead to to unfulfilled expectations and disappointment. it's one of those surgeries that needs to be over corrected. So therefore, you should ask your surgeon whether the excess upper eyelid skin you are experiencing represents residual or recurrent brow ptosis/ droop or whether it represents true upper eyelid skin excess.
If you are saying the lids themselves are drooping, this could be indicative of an eyelid "ptosis" or droop, which is independent of the brow lift procedure you had done.
I would suggest you have an evaluation with your surgeon so you can discuss your concerns.
