There is simply very little understanding by surgeon of how eyelids feel after surgery and what it means. Clearly you are bothered by what is going on. You have waited a full year after surgery. It has been my experiences that scar tissue in the eyelid is the basis for these symptoms. I seriously doubt that a brow lift will provide relief of your symptoms. My point is that fixing this is very likely to create its own problems. I do understand the concern about the fall in the eyebrow position. Be careful out there.
