My right eye is larger than my left. The lower eyelid is lower on the right which makes it look larger than the left eye.

This is something that a person asked me to correct for her.  She has a right eyelid that was larger than the left to a minimal degree. It appeared that the lower eyelid of the right eye was lower in position making the right eye appear larger in general.

This was my answer:

This would be difficult to correct the asymmetry in your eyelids through blepharoplasty.  It seems that your lower eyelid in the right eyelid is lower than the left.  It would be possible to take some skin from the left eye to lower that and this would have to done very carefully.  The risks that this could not be exactly what you are looking for is relatively high. As most of the experts have mentioned, most surgeons would likely stay away from this situation.  You would have to accept the risk that it might not be completely what you are looking for.  Given that your eyes are already pretty, a surgeon would less likely want to do anything.  One thing to remember is that surgery is never as natural as what God created for you.  At least this is not the case at this time.
