Female: After the operation, will my eyelid look the same as it did before?

Dr. Prasad: The answer to this question is based on the objective of the eyelid surgery. If you are having ptosis surgery then elevating higher the eyelid should improve the appearance of your eyes. If you have unilateral ptosis or ptosis affecting one eye, I aim to maximize the symmetry and shape with the other eye so your eyes can look the way they did before you developed ptosis.
