my right eyelid drooped when I was a few years old, neuro exams ruled out any thing wrong, my dad's brother died of a brain tumour while my mum was pregnant with me so there was concern. I had failed cosmetic surgery when I was 14, botox, then opthamological surgery when i was 15 to repair b/c it affected my vision same dr then removed excess eyelid skin 9months later. i am now 18 and it is drooping again and v. heavy. last neuro exams were 2 years ago for chronic fatigue related muscle probs.
Ptosis of the eye recurring? Has my surgery reversed?

Recurrent eyelid ptosis
Eyelid ptosis can be repaired and there are varyiou procedures to accomplish this based on the degree of ptosis. I would see an expert Oculoplastic surgeon in your area and be evaluated.
