It is difficult to determine by the photos whether you have true exophthalmos or not. Please see a board certified plastic surgeon who can determine the severity and refer you for appropriate treatment prior to eyelid surgery.

Hi corey22,You have relatively prominent eyes.  Your eyes look larger by the complete iris being on show and with a small amount of the white part of the eye (sclera) below the iris and above the lower lid margin.  There are many reasons for prominent eyes and the medical reasons for this need to be checked out fully before considering any surgery.  The surgical solution in your particular situation would be to elevate the lower lid.  There are multiple surgical techniques for this.  You really need to be seen by a qualified plastic surgeon who does a lot of eyelid surgery to discuss this further. Best,Warwick Nettle

There can be treatment for your condition but it depends.  I would recommend an evaluation with an eye doctor to determine if there are reversible or treatable medical causes.  Subsequently, you can consider dermal fillers or fat transfer to improve the appearance of the eyelids, and lower eyelid/cheek area.  I would recommend you see a board certified facial plastic surgeon to discuss your options.

Although treatment options are available, it requires in person consultation. See following link for more information.

sorry too tough to tell based on the photos. I need to see your cheek and determine the vector. Basically this is something you want to get an in person exam for to get proper recs. Options for lower lid are to place an implant or filler. Upper lid is tougher
