Thank you for your question. You will need to come in for a consultation to determine the correct treatment for your eyelid. Look for a board certified plastic surgeon and make an appointment for a consultation.

You really would need to be examined to determine what options you might have to improve the right eyelid injury scar you sustained 2-3 years ago.  It may be possible that a minor surgical procedure could be done to improve it, but the exam would determine if this might be a good option for you.
