I am am a 52 yr o physician who recently underwent partial myectomy and ptosis repair for Blepharospasm with Apraxia of lid opening, initially almost 7 wks ago, along with lateral canthoplasty which I was unaware of (I am not asian) until after.

Initially told I could go back to work in 2 wks, 6wks off ideal as I was to join a new practice in 6 wks. At 3 wks ,sent pictures to my out-of-state surgeon as eyes looked very deformed not just asymmetrical, was reassured that it was "great"at 3 wks post op . At 5 wks f/u my Lt eye upper lid was almost non existent in the lateral half, I looked strange at best.There was no way any of that could correct on its own. On my insistance as I had already lost the job, had resigned from the one I had), he agreed to make some corrections to both eyes.

Now though its only been 2 wks since the 2nd repair,(i also have a stitch abscess in Rt eye that came up 3 days after 2nd surgery,but healing) my LT lid is <1/2 the size of the Rt one, there is almost no lid above the suture line even to try and pull and there is a large fold above the RT.Rt eye has lagophthalmos

HORRIBLE! Worst decision of my life.Did it because of medical advice. Was told risk of contracturs and will need more extensive surgery later . Untimely, as I had great results after 1 treatment with botox .

Please help me with timely advice, I don't know where to turn. Thanks

still desperate 5 1/2 yrs and 2 more surg later

I made a separate post by mistake. Pictures don't tell the real or whole story..and hard to take correctly


What i would really like to know us if there is a surgeon anywhere in the US who can not only fix my eyes but also give me some kind of a partial lower face lift to fix the.flaccidity not only from the nerve injuries from degloving , also aging. With all that happened with my eyes, i can't do any kind of make up, have to rub them all the time, do stopped bothering about all appearance.. I am 57 now. Looked like 27 when i was almost 40 just before my accident, 50 by the time i was 45 and 87 now. I don't want tofeell this way anymore. I have no life style illness. Life long vegetarian, no diabetes,htn bmi 22 .. Anyone who can offer help?

Did not like to listen, or answer questions, very arrogant. Details never discussed, pros/cons never explained. Got info from a bunch of articles handed to me.
