I had an upper blepharoplasty 20 years ago and have developed a drooping right eye. What can be done for this? (photo)

Ptosis Surgery does NOT equal Upper Blepharoplasty
Both eyelids are droopy.

Hi Renamaesheila, Thanks for your questions and photos. Based on your picture, you do appear to have mild ptosis of your right upper lid and brow. I think the blepharoplasty 20 years ago most likely isn't related to the ptosis. However, everyone has some degree of facial asymmetry and this is likely the reason why one side is more affected that the other. The good news is that ptosis of the lid and brow responds very nicely to surgical repair. I would recommend a consultation with a skilled oculofacial plastic surgeon in your area. I hope this helps, good luck!
