What exactly is the problem with my eye/eyebrow and what can I do to fix it? (photo)

Over active brow elevation on left side
From the photos you have provided, your right eyebrow appears to be in the correct anatomic position while the left brow is higher. This is likely due to over activity of the muscle that raises the eyebrow on the left. If that were the case, careful administration of botox/dysport to the left side can relax the muscle and return the brow to a more symmetric position relative to the right side.
All the best,

First of all you have attractive eyes and nice skin. Those are great starts! Every patient has asymmetries if we look close enough and brow asymmetry is one of the most common.
I would recommend starting with botox. A skilled injector should be able to target the specific muscles that elevate and lower the brow. You need to decide with your surgeon and a facial analysis which brow position looks best on your face and then work with the toxin to get the other to match.
Surgery is also an option but I would start with botox in this case.
Hope this helps.
Best of luck,
Thanks for posting your question and photos!
Your left frontalis muscle is probably exerting a stronger pull on your brow than the right. Directed Botox treatment should be able to improve this greatly. You will need to keep up on Botox injections.

You are describing a frontal branch of the facial nerve palsy (the nerve going to your brow on one side doesn't work) which can have have many causes and many solutions.
While Botox may be your best option, first see a plastic surgeon who is interested in finding the underlying cause and all the possible solutions.
