Contradictory goals: Your facial nerve a paralysis is the primary problem. Without the gold weight pushing down your eyelid to help, with closure, your cornea could be exposed and abraded leading to scarring. Performing a brow lift now may lead to more corneal exposure.

If it was me, i would want an oculoplastic surgeon or an opthalmologist with significant experience to correct the drooping lids. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
