I'm a 20 year old male and my right eye (brow, eyelid) is notably asymmetrical compared to my left.
///To make it clear: my right brow is actually the one on your left for the photos\\\
// Eyes rested:
// Eyes raised: (Yes I'm applying even pressure to both) http://i1329.photobucket.com/albums/w554/ktz1800/raised002_zpsbe99c4fd.jpg
This has been bothering me for 3 years now. I've had botox once or twice to lower the brow, but that of course is only temporary. I'd like for a permanent solution. Plus the botox was only meant to improve my brow, and obviously doesn't directly help in improving my eyelid.
I feel like the entire shape of my upper eyelid is just off (compared to everything about my left eye which I find looks great for my face). It's mostly the brow and upper eyelid that are asymmetric, but even my lower eyelid looks "off" to me when smiling or making any sort of expression. What do you see?
I know it's not common, but shouldn't a reverse browlift help? Do you have any experience or knowledge with that? *Could* this be similar to a situation where someone had too high of a brow-lift and wants revision surgery to lower them?
Also, I consulted with one surgeon in person and he mentioned these 2 things if he were to lower the brow:
- that it would affect expressions I make with my face
- there may be a small dimple on my forehead/near my eyebrow (located where my "overactive" muscle is that they'd alter)
Are those indeed two factors I'd have to consider having, if I were to do the procedure? Or is there any way to prevent that? I enjoy acting and I'd be a little worried if I couldn't make a 'surprised' expression or something with my one brow.
What do you make of this? Thanks Dr. Lam
