Hello, Ive had an upper bleph done twice, for very hooded eyes. The first time left a large scar on the outside of right eye, it was done about 10 years ago, the second was performed last year and my eyes look exactly the same, no results, except the scar in now further out towards my temple. The bleph corrected some hoodedness, but my eyes are tiny-is there any way to enlarge my eyes?
You will require an examination and review of your previous surgery's to answer your questions. Consider requesting a copy of your previous operative reports on your eylid surgery's. Then, consider a consult with an ASPS member in your area that specializes in Occuplastic Surgery. Take your records with you to the visit.

Chances are your eyebrows are low. Low eyebrow diagnoses and correction is under utilized. Talk to your surgeon about a Browlift procedure.
Without an examination and review of your medical records it is impossible to give you any kind of reasonable answer.
Certainly, pictures would be helpful. There could be at least two problems to which you are referring. First, the aperture of your eyes could be small which may be genetic but could potentially be adjusted with various procedures for your canthus, particularly your lateral canthus. Second, I agree with Dr. Kim that your brows could be compressing your eyes/eyelids even after a successful blepharoplasty. Hope this helps.
I also recommend consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
