This is fixable in expert hands.
You should heal a full 6 to 12 months before having this revised. The challenge is separating the scared planes in the eyelid to correct the ptosis surgery. For this reason the full 6 months of healing is needed. The upper eyelid fold needs to be reconstructed as well to help the two sides look like each other. Study the attached video below.
