Thank you for your question.

It is possible to correct asymmetries after a suture blepharoplasty procedure, however, not all problems can be addressed by repeating the same technique.

The suture technique aims to create a fold but it does not address any excess skin and may not address ptosis of the eyelid.

If you are considering revision, it's best to wait about 6 months after your first procedure to see if the asymmetry is due to swelling. Also, it's best to return to your original plastic surgeon as they will know what was done in the first procedure and what the possible remedies are. If your procedure was not done by a plastic surgeon then I would suggest seeking the opinion of a plastic surgeon as they will be able to offer surgical solutions in addition to the minimally invasive solutions. You may require incisional methods to correct the asymmetry - fold height, excess skin and ptosis can be addressed.

It is common to have asymmetries early on in your recovery, so be patient, hopefully your problems will resolve with time.

Hope this helps.
