    Question Sagging eyelids/ptosis? :(

    Argh this problem has been bothering me. My eyes always appear to be bigger one one side, because my left eyelid feels sort of saggy. I did a bit of research on google, apparently this is called ptosis or something. No matter how hard I try, my left eyelid simply refuses to lift itself!

    I'm pretty sure this has nothing to do with aging because I'm only 17, so I guess it's more of a hereditary thing. I'm considering doing a ptosis surgery because I love the size of my right eye. Would it be advisable for me to do it? When would be the best time for me to do it? Should I do it now or when I'm a bit older instead? Would there be any undesirable side effects of a ptosis surgery?

    Arghhh, sorry for asking so many questions, I really hate my saggy eyelids

    ps. And yes I hate my single eyelids too. The "joys" of being an Asian!
