Q:

Can an upper eyelid surgery repair long-term damage from Bell's Palsy? The affected eye is droopier than the other, but both eyelids sag.

A:

If your Bell's Palsy has shown no improvement for more than 2 years, you could be a good candidate for eyelid surgery. Eyelid repair should be able to improve the droopy look but would not affect the dynamic function of the eyelid.
