Droopy eyelid after surgery
Since you had the Botox a month before we can't blame the Botox. It does appear that the right eyelid Ptosis may not have been corrected enough. But you are very early in the healing process. If it doesn't raise much after a couple of weeks your physician may recommend a revision tightening of the right eyelid. Definitely keep your follow up with your surgeon and voice your concerns.
Why is my eyelid drooping after eyelid surgery?
After ptosis surgery, the muscle can be limited by swelling, or weakening do to manipulation. But also this may represent tethering of the muscle or slipping of the muscle after it was placed. Discuss your concerns with your surgeon.
