ptosis Repair Surgery Still Present
I had congenital ptosis of my left eye(20 mm resection done). after a week satures were removed. Since then there is now crease in left eye that was not earlier but eye still droops but with bumpy eyelid which at first for 6 months my surgeon said it's swelling now he says you need a surgery awake to perfectly match left eye with right eye. Please tell me is it swelling or i actually need revision. I am frustrated

In general, ptosis surgery is unpredictable because of uneven healing and scarring that can occur after surgery. It is apparent that you still have ptosis on the left, which was the worse side before surgery too. You don't have any swelling at this point. If it is bothering you, you should consult an oculoplastic surgeon.
