When I was 22 I was in a punk rock band.

Question:

When I was 22 I was in a punk rock band and I got smashed in the face with a guitar. Ever since my eye hasn’t been the same and has looked droopy. I’s only gotten worse with age. Is there a way that Blepharoplasty can fix my eye?

Answer:

I would need to evaluate you before making a recommendation, but it sounds like you may have either a dehiscence of the muscle that elevates your eyelid, or excessive scar tissue that is impinging eyelid elevation. I perform repairs of both of these conditions, but I doubt simple blepharoplasty will fix your problem. Another possibility is that you sustained a bone fracture around your eye that may need to be addressed. The periorbital region is very complex and requires thorough evaluation.
