My sister age 38 had a left ptosis(by birth) surgery done. The Doctor had the lid go up too high, now it doesn’t match with the other eye inaddition and she has low arch eye brow. Please tell me what can be done to fix this problem.
The correction of eyelid ptosis (drooping eyelids) or retraction (eyelid too high) is very tricky. The first step is proper diagnosis to determine if one eyelid is too low or the other is too high or if one is compensating for the other. Its complicated. Then the cause must be determined. Is it neurological or anatomical, etc. Finally the proper surgery must be planned and in adults the surgery is often done awake to patients can open and close their eyes during surgery for the best outcome. Despite all this, asymmetries can and do occur and need for revision is not that rare. At this point you want to make sure your sister is seen and treated by a very experienced Oculoplastic surgeon with lots of experience correcting this type of surgery because it gets tougher with each additional surgery. It should be correctable but you will have to do lots of homework to find the right Oculoplastic eyelid surgeon.
