Uneven Eyebrows!

I have uneven or asymmetrical eyebrows. One eyebrow is higher than the other and this drives me crazy. It has nothing to do with the way I pluck my eyebrows. The muscles on my right eyebrow are just lower than the left eyebrow. I bring this up because I am seriously considering surgery to correct this. The reason why is that I had a disturbing conversation with my doctor.

So I'm in the doctor's office and she asks me about my weight and height and all that other stuff. Then suddenly, out of the blue she starts saying:

"I'm trained to notice small details and I noticed that that one side of your face is lower than the other. Did you have a stroke in the past or something similar?"

WTF? At this point, I'm shocked and I'm mumbling something about getting my eyebrows fixed or something. I mean, it's good that she was forthright and asked because it is better to know that other people notice rather than pretend not to notice but it was a huge shock. Plus, I guess she was doing it out of concern for my health but seriously, WTF? I never had a stroke. This is my NORMAL face!

Part of the problem is that I have an eyefold on my left eye and no eye fold on my right eye. For those of you that aren't Asian, this is the epicanthic fold or the crease in your eye where you put on eye shadow. A lot of Asian don't have this fold and so their eyelids look one-lidded or flat. Other Asians have the fold and it makes their eyes look much bigger and friendlier. Many Asians who are mono-lidded get surgery to artificially these eyefolds. My sister got this surgery a few years ago. This surgery has been vilified as a means for Asian to look more "Western". But really, the surgery doesn't make someone look more white, it just opens up the eyes and makes the eyes look a lot bigger which is more attractive in a lot of cultures. Sometimes the surgery actually makes the eyes look more Asian as it emphasizes the slants at the corners. Also, the eyefolds that are more popular and most requested look nothing like Western eyelids.

I digress. So this one eyefold thing is part of the problem of my asymmetrical face. The other problem is my uneven eyebrows. So how to fix it? I find that if I lift my right brow to the same level as my left brow, my left eye automatically becomes folded in resembling my right eye. So I'm thinking this surgery could be worthwhile. Am I taking this too far? I wonder if anyone else has had the same problem. I looked this up online and found patients who most often request this surgery are old white people with droopy eyelids and bags. Is there an easier way to accomplish this? I can't be the only Asian with uneven eyes!

HI,

I am not Asian, however I do have the same exact problem. My right eyebrow is lower than my left. I am also considering surgery to lift it up to make it even. Have you found a solution your problem yet. Please share.

I had (have) the same problem. I'm asian and was born with asymmetrical eyelids. My eyebrows were the same height till about 16.

I got eyelid surgery on one eye around 18 to fix the single eyelid.

But over the years this caused my eyebrows to settle at different heights.

Had eyelid surgery again last year on both eyes to make things symmetrical.

Long story short, my conclusion is that eye and eyebrow uneveness is caused by asymmetric usage of your face. In bright light, if you have different eye sizes, your eyes and muscles react to the light differently because of different amounts of light coming in. Trying to compensate for asymmetric facial features by holding your face a certain way only makes things worse in the long run.

So, if you get eye surgery, do both eyes. Make sure that you use the muscles in your face symmetrically on a day to day basis. HTH

OMG! I have the same exact thing as the rest of you guys. It started when i was 11. i was freaking out because all my friends said, "Your eyebrow looks totally wierd". My left eyebrow is higher than my righ. It was fine when i was 11, but i let my friend pluck my eyebrows. And i think she did a horrible job. And turned out horrible. I think it's just because of my friend or my eyelids or whatever are just wierd. So i ask my Mom and she said, "No, it's fine your just Asian". So i started to worry. I couldn't get surgery at that age. So i have to do something about it now!

P.S. i never found a cure.
By the way i'm around my teenage years. Anyone please tell what you did to figure out this problem. i will be back and post another comment to read the rest of yours.

aagh!! I have the same problem and it drives me UP THE WALL!! I am only one quarter Asian (though I have NO idea if that has anything to do with it)
My right eyebrow is more higher and rounded off in shape while the left eyebrow is lower and has a perfectly arched shape. I HATE IT!!!
What to do?!?!

I think only sugery can fix this...or maybe that permanate make-up to make the right eyebrow look like the left one??

To those of you fretting about your "uneven eyebrows" i just want to throw in a reality check... I'm a 21 year old Male with uneven eyebrows AND a crooked nose, the entire right side of my face is smaller than my left and it even effects the hairline and ear lobes.. ,my left ear is higher than my right.

if you want to get surgery that's your choice but i just wanted to say, I'm F-ing more unique than everybody else and if you see it people will see it. It's how you carry yourself and it's all perception.. the people who you think look at you and you're afraid if they're thinking about your nose/eyebrow well there's not much you can do about it, you can't control what people think, they will think whatever they want, face it. Just ignore them and concentrate your time with people who look beyond your so called "flaws" i don't call them flaws by the way.

You might be afraid of losing friends or boyfriends/girlfriends well thinking it is totally okay you just have to somehow realise your face isn't what will get you good friends or get you popular or get you boyfriend/girlfriends, it's 100 and 90 percent how you project yourself and your personality, be loving, kind, genuine, sincere, all the time and mark my words people will crawl to you jobs will be offered to you and the girls/boys will frolic to you...

i know from personal experience because i too used to beat myself up about it until i DID something about it.. no not get surgery.. i just tossed myself out there in the world and accepted i am capable of doing what every other man/woman does. Enjoy Life.

you have a crooked nose? So what, i bet you didn't know crooked noses make it easier to cuddle with a woman (i.e kiss.. the more best side will caress her nose and tickle it)

have a raised eyebrow? SO what, you can still see straight, project your good traits..

if you're smart, be witty,

if you have great jokes then be funny

my point is don't let your life pass you by wallowing in problems WHICH ARE OUT OF YOUR CONTROL

I have a similar problem. My eyes are uneven. It's so hard for me to accept this. I love the comment above this one by anonymous. Thank you for your kind words of advice. You helped me out a little bit just by reading what you had to say. I'm trying so hard to get over it, but it's hard.

I'm a 26 y/o male and I have the same problem. It seems that the nerve/muscles on the right side of my face is weaker than the other side. My eyebrows are uneven, I also don't have the fold over my right eye, and my right ear is hangs slightly lower. It drives me crazy!!! The first chance I get to fix some or all I will. Anyone ever have the surgery, I'm taking recommendations.

Hi, I am white, and I have the exact same problem. My right eyebrow is a few mm lower than my left one, and the arch is rounder. My right eye is a little lower than my left one, too, and has an epicanthal fold, while my left one doesn't. My right eye also doesn't see quite as well as my left, and has slight eyelid ptosis, while my left eyelid is fine. So I think there is definitely something to another posters' idea that muscle weakness is a factor in this problem. Which is weird, because I'm right handed.

I think I've had this problem my whole life, but it's just gotten more noticeable as I age (I'm in my 30's now). I would like to have surgery to correct the ptosis and uneven eyebrows, but I'm afraid that the surgeon might accidentally blind me! You only have 2 eyes!

I dont have uneven eyebrows but my right eye has two creases and my left eye only has one, I'm not sure if it has anything to do with me being half asian or not but it looks really weird. Sometimes the right eye crease will "pop" back and it will be even and then sometimes it will go back to the double crease. Anyone else have the same problem?

That post by the anonymous male made me cry. Thank you for such kind words!!! I'm white and I've always had uneven eyebrows since I was a young kid. I think it's because I fell and cut my forehead open and had to have surgery right on my eyebrow. I have a scar and everything. Sometimes I can brush them so that they look even, but if you look close it looks funny because one is brushed up and one is brushed down. I've had people comment on them before... I wish I could just have normal eyebrows........

well, here's another "me too!" I am half white and half black...does that count? anyway, I have recently noticed that one of my eyebrows naturally sits lower than the other. For some reason this is really apparent to me not when I look directly at my reflection in the mirror, but rather when I look at my reflection in a double mirror. The asymmetry also seems to get worse when I haven't gotten enough sleep.

I have an eyelid crease in both eyes, but when my eyes are fully open, you can't see the eyelid crease on my left eye. It looks sort of like an older person's eye, when the skin directly beneath the eyebrow kind of rests on the eyelashes. I can definitely identify with the feeling that the left side of my face has weaker muscle tone than the right. The lines in my forehead are also more visible on my right side, consistent with the theory that the muscles on the right side of my face are more active.

I think the doctor to see for this kind of thing is an opthamologist because that kind of doctor deals with eye issues that are beyond vision. My research has also indicated that botox could be a less drastic, less expensive fix than surgery.

OMG... I have the EXACT same problem.

I'm Asian-- hapa, actually- and my left eyebrow is higher than my right. My left eyelid is lacking a crease, which I believe contributes to it. My makeup hides my eye flaw pretty well (with dark colors to create a "crease") but my eyebrow? I just try plucking the lower one under the brow, and the higher one above the brow, to try to create balance. Helps a LITTLE, not much, but its something...

Why not ask for threads on one side? I had some threads put in my forehad as it is too soon for a brow lift. It defined my eyes, arched the brows, and diminished the hood over my lid so that my eyes look more open.

It's not drastic, overly expensive, and it worked for me!

I'm a 15 year old white english girl and noticed the same thing as you.
I feel like there's is nothing i can actually do about it and before realising the real problem, i thought it was down to my eyebrows and so they're now completely messed up an won't grow back :(
I can't get my make-up even and i now have to have a fringe over my eyebrows at all times to cover them!

I have this same problem. I'm a 30 year old caucasian female with "asian-looking" eyes and this has been an issue i've had my entire life. My right side of my face is larger than my left (they call is facial scoliosis). As I've gotten older my left eyelid droops in addition to my already crooked face. Ive had doctors walk up to me on the street and ask me if I knew my face was crooked. Yes, thank you I know my face is crooked. At any rate ive discovered botox to help tremendously in evening out my eyebrows and fixing my eyelid issue. Its definitely a science and not your average botox injections so I recommend making sure you see a good plastic surgeon for the injections but mine has it down pact and we've discovered a way to keep them looking more even. This in turn has helped make the rest of my face appear more symmetrical as well. hope this helps!

Has anyone seen their doctor about this? I am wondering if you need to see an opthamologist or a plastic surgeon?? I just want to get it taken care of as I am TIRED of checking in the mirror every 15 minutes to see if my face has gone uneven..

Haha! i dream of only having uneven eyebrows!

I'm a 17 year old male who used to be told all the time how attractive he was. Recently i cut my hair shorter and quickely noticed i had seriously uneven ears! This doesn't sound like much, but my left ear is a half inch higher than my right and slightly smaller too. Other aspects of my face are drastically uneven too and every picture i'm in, it really looks like the camera has gone wrong and printed half of my face far higher and smaller than the right.

This sorta thing really depresses me and i find it hard to enjoy myself when i go out as i know what i must look like.

Just like many of you though, i don't judged anyone else by their appearance. We're all judging ourselves so hard, when you think about it, the only person really putting you down is you!

So i'll never be a model, or look good in a photo, but this is the hand i was dealt and i'm gonna make the best of my completely independant ears, wonkey eyes, lop-sided face and crooked jaw line that i possibly can.

Until of course, i am offered the chance to swap my head for someone else's!

Anyone wanna trade?...

Hey,

Wow...it was wonderful for me to read this because I didn't realize other people had this problem as well! I'm always looking at pictures and noticing how unsymmetrical my eyebrows/eyes are and how symmetrical other peoples' are and it's been driving me crazy!

For me, my problem started quite a few years back when I got the weirdest...I suppose it was a disease...but anyways for some reason one day I woke up and my face was crooked! When I smiled, one side of my face pulled up higher, and when I scrunched up my nose, only one side could go up, and only one of my eyes could close completely! I was freaked out! Normal doctors told me that I should try to take steroids (what the heck, right?), but fortunately my grandma is an acupuncturist and was visiting that summer and she basically poked one side of my face with needles for a month and I was all better. Unfortunately the problem seems to have re-emerged partially...just so that my eyebrows and eyes are not quite symmetrical, so I will probably start seeing an acupuncturist. I would definitely recommend this to many of you as well, who believe that the dis symmetry is based on an uneven muscle problem, because something about acupuncture is able to stimulate your muscles. And really acupuncture is not very painful at all nor nearly as scary as it may initially seem. Best of luck to all of you :) Maybe we should start an uneven face support club ;D and ya anonymous, 21, male, that was a very nice post, thanks for that

My eyebrows use to be exactly the same; however, when I was 16 I noticed how some women can raise 1 eyebrow, and how sexy it looked so I practiced every day until I could do it. Well over the years it caused my right eyebrow to develop more muscle than the other so now 1 is a lot higher than the other. I am trying to practice moving the other one so and stop raising the dominant eyebrow so hopefully they will even back out, since that it what caused the problem in the first place. I am now 28 years old so I figure I have many years to make up for to even them out. I am only sharing this because I think that it will help some of you that have the same problem. I began practicing my raising my eyebrow while holding my other one down until it was strong enough to do it on its own. I am now using the same method with the other side. Well I hope this works for you guys.

Wow - I can't believe how many other people has asymmetrical eyes and eyebrows.

I am asian and I have had asymmetrical eyes and eyebrows all my life.

My right eye is lower than my left eye. It is also a lazy eye which probably doesn't help as my eye muscles are weak.

There doesn't seem to be any surgery available to level out asymmetric eyes either, unless anyone knows of any surgery??

Wow it is relieving to know that others have the same problem as me and are working towards correcting it. Over the past few years I have become obsessed with symmetry in my face and feel that everything would be complete if only I could fix my eyebrows. I had almost given up on them (and perhaps implanting some later on) until I read these comments. Whoever suggested shapeyourface.com, thank you so much. I really think this is the answer, and after just a little bit I think I can already see an improvement. Even if this does not help the problem much, I think it will improve the overall look of my face. Being a male, I really need to stop obsessing about this shit but I just can't. Hopefully fixing the problem with relieve the obsession, and I can move on to more important things.

Probably some degree of unevenness in everyone, but as we get older things sag, and sag unevenly. I'm a 50 y/o white female, and had a brow lift about 5 years ago. Brow line was always a couple of millimeters different, but I've noticed more in photos lately the right is lower than left and eye looks more closed...probably notice it myself more than others, but I want to have as much symmetry as possible. I'm going back to the same PS who performed the brow lift, and see if something can be done to raise it. BTW, brow lift is a serious operation so any one considering it should be aware this is painful, and the huge incision across your scalp line is sutured and stapled. If you have a high hairline or thinning hair in front, don't consider it...do your homework on surgeons too. There are a lot of good ones, but way too many bad ones, and you are the one who lives with any mistakes! A bad haircut is one thing, but a bad plastic surgery is quite another...

I'm a white female of 18 years and I noticed this problem with myself a couple of years ago.

It's weird because in the mirror, to myself, I can barely see that my eyes are so asymmetrical. Yet from photograph's taken from the immediate front, it's like woah !

My right eyebrow is much flatter in comparison to my left eyebrow - the left eyelid is less apparant than the right due to the 'sagging' if you like, of the eyebrow. It's just so annoying because I'm becoming more and more conscious whenever someone gets out a camera and I find myself purposely rising my right eyebrow in the hope I'll look better.

Sometimes, it can work.. not much of a solution but this was certainly good to read to know i'm not alone in this

my right eyebrow is higher than my left. it is something like The Rock's eyebrow except that it is not as extreme. the cause of the problem was an injury that i got when i was about 10 years old. i was elbowed in my right eye during a soccer match.

i didn't notice the asymmetry until only 1-2 years ago only. it is not just my eyebrow that is affected. my right eye is slightly smaller and looks 'sleepy'. it doesn't look as lively as my left eye.

i'm pretty self-conscious already before i notice the asymmetry and now it's worse. i notice some people will look at me weirdly. at times, some look at me for a second or two and then look away, as if trying to avoid eye contact. i myself avoid eye contact a lot. i don't even maintain eye contact with friends i have known for years anymore. it is affecting me socially and emotionally badly...

Can anyone tell me what doctor should I see? A plastic surgeon? A doctor who deals with nerves? I don't know..

Symmetry is seriously important. If you even feel asymmetrical, it ruins your concentration, and makes you more emotionally vulnerable and unproductive. It is critical to your health! I have asymmetrical eyebrows and it drives you nuts, I no longer even work.

I totally get how annoying it is. The right side of my face is lower than the left. My eyebrows are uneven, I have a slight lazy eye (with the drooping eyelid), my nose is actually higher and my mouth is lower on the right too. I've uneven ears also but thats between being generally squint faced and having surgery (Otoplasty as a child, was meant to get it done again but never have).

Personally I wouldn't get surgery because I had it and it went wrong - it was meant to be corrected but its never happened. My uneven eyebrows get covered by a fringe my squinty sticky out ears are hidden by my hair. I don't wear make up as it doesn't draw you to the unevenness either.

I have one eyebrow that is higher than the other also. Actually, I had what is called a "lazy eyelid" where my left eyelid drooped lower than my normal right eyelid. The left eyelid covered half my eye! Also, my left eye is kind of lazy, meaning that it is slightly blurry even with contacts but thankfully i can see out of it shapes and all fine. I know some people with the same lazy eye but they are blind in that eye, so I guess I can count myself lucky. My left eyebrow being higher drives me crazy because even though I had the eyelid surgery I feel it becomes slightly noticeable when I get tired. I went to a really good eye surgeon on the recommendation of my parents who are both Opthamologists (medical doctors of the eyes)when I was 14 years old. I am going to go back to my doctor who did the surgery and ask him about if he can/ or a facial plastic surgeon can correct my eyebrow issue. My mom wouldnt let me get it down cuz she said there would be a scar on the side of my face, but I know that goes away over time, at least it will for a fair Irish girl like me (and I had no financial resources cuz I was too young) but now that I'm 22 years old and saving money I'm planning on getting the surgery done. I'm from Florida, so if anyone wants a reccomendation for a doctor, just post here.

Hello.

My left eyebrow is lower then my right, people sometimes say 'why are you looking so serious or even angry' when im actually in a good mood.

What I have and most of you guys is an lazy-eyelid and you can ofcourse get rid of it with surgey BUT! an lazy-eyelid means that your eye muscle is weak.

What i did was looking in a mirror and front really hard (and thus flexing my muscles) and hold that look for 5 minutes then look very surprised for 5 minutes again. i did these exercises for about a week.
And it did really help its all about training that muscle people.

so before considering a surgery please try this! maybe it will help you too.

=)
let me know how it worked
xxx/!

Thanks for telling me that! i was considering surgery like a year and a half from now, but i will def try those exercises you suggested. my left eyebrow is higher than my right but its not noticeable to people unless i point it out but it annoys the heck outta me (also cuz i had a lazy eyelid that i had fixed with surgery.) i'll let everyone know if these exerciseing the muscles of eyebrow works.

In response to doing those eyebrow exercises to strenghten the muscles by making a frown, it doesn't work. I asked my mom who is an Opthamologist and she says that doesn't do anything to help. She said its not like working your arm or leg muscels which can strenghten over time. The only way to lower your eyebrow is to move the musle down (i'm not sure if i'm phrasing it right but something to lower you eyebrow) and then you also have to get surgery to move your eyelid up a little because you don't want your eyebrow and muscles to be bearing down on your eye and thus you have extra eyelid skin over your eye. Surgery is the only way people, I'm giving you free medical advice people from my mom who is Ivy-League educated, so its coming from the best source. Hope this helps!

Thanks for posting. It has helped me deal with the mysterious eyebrow (left). I can definitely relate to the picture taking experience. I can't really enjoy it because I am so busy focusing on raising my eyebrow to make my face even. I am not really a very vain person but this is so annoying. I am going to see a neuro-ophthomologist to see if there is something going on since this started in adulthood. I think after a major sinus infection that blew my face up after a plane ride. I like the idea of sending in photos of just our eyes.

I have uneven eyebrows too and it drives me nuts! Its so noticable in pictures, I see everyone else with great eyebrows and wish mine were normal. I had no idea so many people had this problem! One eye is smaller than the other too :( I recently got side bangs to hide one of my eyebrows, it makes it less obvious, recommend doing that over surgery.

hi everyone, im 19yr old female with a asymetrical rt side of my face, not just the eyebrow but the whole side. this happened 3 yrs ago when i got in to a car accident and suffered multiple skull fractures, it left with rt side facial paralysis, it is alot like bells pallsy, if anyone experienced that, except bells pallsy is a disease that attacks the nerve and when the disease is over the muscles work as normal, hopefully. this is a drag for me a 19yr old female, and i suggest exercises for anyone who is willing to put in the time.. for me the motivation is hard but my new years resolution is to get a good routine going... so if you have any good exercises for the eyebrow or any other face muscle please let me know, eyebrow is the hardest one for me to isolate, thanks.

ps i like the comments that say just live your life.. no one gets to choose the out comes of their future or how they were born, and the most critical person about you out there is yourself, why would anyone else really care... but it is hard to get over it self confidently... i know!.. WHAT DOESNT KILL YOU WILL ONLY EVER MAKE YOU STRONGER, and a more beautiful person who will notice the things that really matter in life

Hi everyone. Well I have the same problem. My right eyebrow is a little lower than my left one. At first I thought it was fixable and tried to pluck them to symmetry, but my right eyebrow just became thinner, so I stopped.
It's been years since I first noticed the issue, and because of my self-consciousness, I started paying a lot of attention to other people's faces. Through out this years I have also realized that is a natural thing. Almost everybody has a lower eyebrow. But there is something else that I've noticed. Famous people like models, actors, singers, etc. tend to have the left eyebrow lower than the right one. Try it yourselves guys, and see if I am correct. Could there be any relation between the side your lower eyebrow is, and, I don't know, the way people react at you. Something that affects the development of your personality or the way you present yourself to society? I know, these might be dumb questions, but who knows...

In the end, I seriously believe that having an uneven eyebrow is natural. No one is completely symmetric, so take care of yourselves.

Hi, I've already commented but I felt the need to again. I'm a 16 yo white female. I find this problem so annoying as if i raise my right eyebrow in photos, I look SO attractive. That sounds stupid but, people always ask "How do you make yourself look so good in photos?" and THAT is the reason. It's annoying to try and explain this to people i.e. my mum as she says im just being silly, but I feel like this is the difference between me being ugly and me being attractive. After all, scientists say symmetry is the key to beauty. AHHHHHH! This is so frustrating.

Wow, I'm so glad I found this website. It's like an AA - Alcohol Anonymous gathering only with eyebrows. All these different voices help me sympathize with my own eyebrow asymmetry and it fills me with hope because all this time I thought maybe I was the only one...well man, am I wrong.

My left eyebrow became asymmetrical after a fight before my freshman year of college. It began drooping down at the end of the eyebrow where the hair meets the unibrow, so I fancied that I looked angrier than usual. But this wasn't the hardest part for me to accept, the most difficult thing was that before this happened, family, friends and even strangers would always tell me how handsome or beautiful I looked, if they were asian I'd be called lang-jai or ming-jai, stuff like that. And afterwards, I'd be praised maybe by 1-50 people supposing that they saw me at the right angle. Now that was the most agitating part and it took me a long time to accept myself and to tell you the truth, I'm still in the process.

What I've learned is that nobody has the right to judge you except God and even if they do, their judgments are completely wrong.

We all have lenses that we look at the world with and they're not our eyes but our hearts and minds. The reality, as I figured is, that the world responds to our intentions by reflecting them back unto us.. So if we intend to see someone past their flaws and stereotypes, and truly see the inner beauty that they possess, they will in turn look past our flaws because our concentration has shifted from our own flaws to focus on the beauty of someone else.

I hope I'm making sense.
But the bottom line is, you have to accept yourself before you expect anyone else to accept you. Just as you must learn to love yourself before you can learn to love another.

Check out Dr. Meronk's website(www.drmeronk.com, tons of info. If you opt surgery , do your homework. Otherwise, you are unique and perfect in your own way just like my beautiful inside and out daughter. It bugs her some times, but she decided not enough to undergo the risks of surgery. But its OK if you feel you need to. Just have realistic expectations and take precautions.

Seriously, I thought that I was the only one in the world that had this problem. Although i'm still young at the age of sixteen, i've realized that it's because I tend to lift up my left eyebrow muscles when taking pictures since it somehow makes me look better, ha. I don't think that surgery would be the greatest option for this at all. We are the only people that notices this problem because it is our body. The doctor noticed it only because he was especially trained to notice the little things, as she had said. However, I had no problem with any one else commenting on my uneven eyebrows other than my father. Our eyebrows are truly visible to those who examine our face really hard, but to those who take quick glances at you, they won't even notice your flaws. They'll just look at you, find you beautiful and then walk away. Believe you me, as anonymous had said before, it's just your perception.

Anyway, my right brow is low and I am constantly checking in the mirror, trying different facial excercises, contemplating surgery, botox....I just want to move beyond this issue - I know it is holding me back from really enjoying my life.

Hi, I have the same exact problem, my eyebrows are totally uneven and not only in size and place, also in shape. one of them is straight and the other one curvy. I hate it because it makes my eyes look different sizes when I smile. I was desperate for help because I also want to get surgery but im just 15 so I cant.
I read a comment here about people complaining about their eyebrows and that it isnt important becuase you will not loose a boyfriend or popularity becuase of it. Im not concern about that, I just want to look better for myself, not for anyone else.
Is there something appart from surgery that i can do? If not, please explain what type of surgery I can do and how is it.

As others have said, I feel really comforted and relieved to see so many other people dealing with the same issue. Just one thing to add: I don't think other people really notice these "flaws" that we are so self conscious about. Maybe we notice it in others (uneven eyebrows), but that's only because we are so aware of it ourselves. Instead of surgery and the potential for irreversible damage, the best thing to do is probably to accept who we are, realize that others don't think it's a big deal, and that it's our personality that defines us not our looks. It know it's hard but maybe resolving to approach life like that everyday will make it a routine way of thinking.

Ok, so… I have one eyebrow that is slightly higher than the other. I've always joked about having my fathers arched eyebrow on the left side of my face and my mothers round on the right. Luckily, I am a woman, so make up helps a lot. If you have the same problem I do would suggest plucking, your eyebrows a little thinner than normal and then filling them in with an 'eyebrow pencil'. NOT eyeliner. Eyebrow pencils are a softer color than eyeliners, and look more natural. Eyebrow pencils have saved me! I can shape both eyebrows to look the same without resulting to expensive and painfull surgery. *hope this helps

for minor asymmetries, training your face can be very effective. Train yourself to isolate the muscles in your brow and raise only the lower eyebrow. It is quite challenging to learn if you can't already do it, but practice every day and you should see an improvement!

I have this problem- my left eyebrow is a few mm higher than my right, and in the past a few people have pointed it out, which is just plain rude and made me feel self-conscious.

Some days, it bothers me, but most days I don't allow it to.

Look up images of Vivien Leigh, one of the most beautiful and iconic actresses of the 20th century, and look at her eyebrows. She isn't symmetrical either, but she's gorgeous- and so are you.

Hi, If you haven't done anything about it yet, find an excellent Botox injector and discuss raising the Brow with Botox. Raising it that way is an alternative to surgery and will go away if you don't like the result.

hi everyone, i went to a plastic surgeon about this exact problem. this is what he told me. he said that my left eyebrow was lower than the right and then he also said my cheekbones are lower on the left side, and along with that, the face is 'oriented' towards the left side of my face and when I smile, the muscles pull towards the left. also, the entire left side (bony structure) rests lower than my right, and my nose, jaw, and chin curve towards the left. because of this, my left eyelid is single and has some ptosis while the right eyelid is double. not only that, the right eye itself is bigger AND higher due to it's position in the bony socket, which makes it look significantly larger than the left (accentuated by the single/double eyelid thingy). also the left eyebrow is curved flat, while the right eyebrow has a more significant arch. So this is what the plastic surgeon told me. he said my asymmetry was maybe a 2 out of a 10, so he said it wasn't too noticable but more asymmetric than the average person. the thing that made me feel bad though is that he said it may not be so obvious in real life but he said if you look at a photo of me head on it is extremely obvious. and then i looked , and yeah, it is very obvious since the eyeballs rest on different levels. all my life, i have been really self conscious about the eyes esp. since the right eye looks about double the size of the left. the left eyelid looks half closed. He then concluded by saying- this asymmetry is NOT able to be corrected by surgery- since it involves bone. He did not recommend any type of surgery except maybe eyelid surgery to make the eyes more 'even' looking but it would never be somewhat symmetrical due to the shape of the bone holding the eyebrows being different. He said this was a congential (born with) thing and it most likely is a gene. I looked at my mom and aunt and they have the exact same asymmetry! I always thought my aunt's face looked wonky , uneven. Then I found out I had it too, and I was like...Oh man. Well actually when I was much younger I was already noticing how uneven my face was! But I can live with it knowing that at least it's a congential thing and nothing I could really do about it. and no surgery can correct it so I choose to live with it although it is pretty ugly and for sure people can tell I will choose to live with it. Symmetry is beautiful and some people are born with it, others are not. If you are lucky you have a pretty symmetrical face but if you are not (and get the bad genes) you still have to live life, too. So I'm going to live normally.

I just passed by when I did a google search of how I can fix this. Unfortunately, I tried plucking my eyebrows too, but my left also is still higher than the right. I am also East Asian with a monolid on the right eye while the other eye is getting to become "doubled" I feel like my face is also uneven because it looks like it's tilting slight to the right when I take pictures.

Anyway, if I do use eyelid tape, my eyebrows look a lot more even, so I assumed it was because of the fact that my eyes are also uneven. This really gets to me and I wish i had a way to fix it. My monolid eye feels a lot "heavier" than my left eye, and yes you can feel lighter because there isn't as much fatty tissue.

My mother says she doesn't see it, and no one seems to point it out to me, I guess sometimes we're way too conscious about things. No one notices that one of my eyes are bigger than another but then again no one says anything either. Same for my eyebrows. My mother said it's only slightly higher, "very little" But this annoys me because when I put my glasses on I also feel like my ears are uneven since the glasses slant :(

hey 56 y.o. female, you're not the oldest "postee" anymore. sorry but i've got you beat. i'm 67 y.o. caucasian male.

what's a man that old doing googling "asymmetrical eyebrows"? that's what i'm asking myself. i'm too old to be vain. i hope.

my right eyebrow is arched higher than the left. the eyebrow situation in itself doesn't really bother me, but what does is that if i look in the mirror at the right side of my face, i look like a cold, mean guy, but the left side of my face looks like an interested, pleasant guy. i usually actually feel pretty good about things and feel like the left side is the real me, but maybe sometimes people take away a wrong impression of me if they're more aware of that impression from the right side of my face.

i think it might have been caused by an accident when i was about 5--got hit on the side of the eye-socket by a wooden swing seat.

never worried about it too much, but i did realize there's something i can do that helps at least from time to time. which is, consciously lifting my eyelids a little makes them even out and removes the mean-guy look. if i remember to do that when being photographed, i usually look better in the photo. and i've noticed sometimes if someone is telling me something while looking me intently in the eye, if i lift those eyelids, it tends to make me feel relaxed, and that seems to make the other person feel relaxed.

don't know if anyone else out there has exactly the same situation i've described, but if so i just wanted to put this out there because it might be helpful.

My eyebrows get waxed into sort of two different shapes, to even out the contrast, but my boyfriend happens to think my eyebrows are extremely sexy. within our first couple dates, he would always tell me, "when you raise your eyebrows at me...its just so...sexy! youre eyebrows are so sexy" The point is, he loves me for me, and even loves what i would consider a flaw in my physical appearance. Lightening your eyebrows also helps, ive found. Im greek, and naturally VERY dark haired, so it helped to take them back a few shades.

Btw, I don't think eyelid surgery would help. I had eyelid surgery, but my eyebrows are still asymmetrical. I think a brow lift would be in order, but it sounds arduous....currently I blame it on the fact that I sleep only on one side FML.

Hi I am only 16 and I noticed my left eyebrow was lower then the other, only slightly. People say i'm being silly, but I know its lower. Im glad im not the only one with the problem. But some people say that with age it can get lower...Is this true and if so what are the chances of me getting it, because i really dont want to have a low eyebrow. I am not exactly pretty and the boy I like will never like me back. So I would rather not have my eyebrow getting any lower then it is, and surgery just costs too much :/ :(.

I ave the same problem, I thought about some of the comments about one side of my face and the muscles not being as developed or used as much, and I realized I can only wink with one eye, not with the other... Do other people have this same issue? Maybe it's proof of the muscle thing.

Hey,

I am in grade 8, and I have totally uneven eyebrows. It annoys me so much!

But it's sort of my fault. I plucked them in a desperate attempt to get people to stop telling me I have a unibrow. Since grade 4, I have been told over and over that I do, and it got me really angry. So, last year in grade 7, I put an end to that. This year I got tweezers. (Don't even ask what I was using last year, I was truly freaking out then...)

So I started to actually shape my eyebrows. Or at least tried. I had not the slightest idea how in the world to do anything with them. But I did it anyway, because I'm sort of a daredevil.

Anyway, I realized afterwards that maybe I should be doing things differently, so I followed some videos and websites, but those created thinner and thinner eyebrows (I used to have huge ones), until now, where I can't really get any thinner without it being just a line. And now is when I realized that one is taller and longer than the other.

The problem? Well yeah, the tweezing job wasn't the best, but my eyes are also two different sizes and shapes, so one eyebrow (my right) was always lower anyway. Except now it's a different shape. And lower. It freaks me out!

I don't know what to do. The one thing that is keeping me sane is my glasses, which really help hide the problem. So anyone who has this problem and has glasses, this is the time to use them.

I'm thinking of getting black frames sometime (my eyebrows are balck, yet my hair is brown)but that's about the only thing that I would be allowed to do, as I'm only 13, and in grade 8... options are limited.

Thank you so much everyone for all the comments. Some of them really help a distressed person (like me!) and it totally relieved me to know I'm not alone.

Not sure if anyone has any other idea for someone with such limited options, supplies and cash. What has helped me the most is glasses and hair. Glasses just because the sort of draw the attention away (as explained before) and hair because if you have a side split you can hide one of your eyebrows for the day. Or if you have long bangs, you can hide both.

Either way, that's my input on this. Thanks again to people who left comments, and I wish good luck to everyone out there with this extremely annoying physical feature.

Cheers!

Ha! I am a 25 year old white girl by the way! :) And I have uneven eyebrows (left is higher), a crooked nose (due to a basketball game), the weird eyelid fold thing, and ONE DIMPLE! Tell me that's not weird!?! I also busted my forehead open on the right side. I wonder if that did anything...

But somehow, I still manage to be hot! ;)

And did anyone else notice that almost everyone else's left eyebrow is higher??? Weird...

I have spoken to two different board certified plastic surgeons and mentioned my uneven eyebrows. The Asian one, Gilbert Lee, here in San Diego said, "Oh, that's an easy fix." The Persian one, Dr. Amir Karam, said it's not a good idea to start messing with them becasue it is hard to get them exactly even. So who knows!

Hey All!

So I just got done reading a majority of everyones comments and I cannot say how refreshing it was to know that there are other people out there with the same problem.

My left eyebrow is higher, my left eyelid droops (I have mild ptosis in that eye), my nose was broke 2 years ago and is extremely jacked up, and not to mention my lips are uneven as well.

It appears that I would of had a stroke on the left side of my face. The only thing that I can think of to cause all of this was when I fractured the entire left side of my face in a car accident when I was 7. I probably damaged some nerves.

Every single day is a struggle for me. I obsess over every last imperfection on my face (especially my eye). I cry at least once a week about it. I don't dare bring it up to other people because I would hate to point out a flaw that they didn't even notice to begin with, so I keep everything bottled up inside.

Why should we have to learn to live like this? My outside doesn't represent who and how I feel on the inside. So why should I continue day in and day out to look like an Ogre.

Albert Einstein defines crazy as repeatedly doing the same thing and expecting different results each time. HELLOOOOO????? Only the best words ever spoken! I'm a firm believer in this for any part of life.

For uneven brows-there is an eyebrow specialist in NYC, Elke Von Freudenberg. $75 will get you a complete brow make-over with the proper teachings on how to maintain it yourself.

Uneven lips-Permanent make-up. If done correctly, artificial lip liner can be tattooed on in a natural way to even out your lips. I believe this costs around $300. In upstate NY (where I am from) go to Nadine's Permanent Make-up in Clifton Park. All her work is NATURAL!!

Nose job-$7,000. Dr. Williams Facial Plastic Surgery out of Latham, NY. He's a double board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty's.

Mild Ptosis-$425. Restylane shots in the droopy eyelid (last 1.5-2 years) also done by Dr. Williams.

I literally just started this transformation. Yes it's going to cost a lot of money BUT if you cut out all your access spending and put any extra cash aside towards your "new you fund" you'll be surprised how quickly you can come up with the cash.

Again, my happiness means everything to me. Think of how much healthier you will be from not stressing about all your imperfections. You get one life, you don't want to spend half of it miserable over things that CAN BE CORRECTED!

I have the exact same problem, and it makes me feel extremely self conscious! I've considered correcting it with surgery as well, but you can also just accept the fact that one eyelid is hooded, pick up some brow enhancing serum at Sephora (http://www.sephora.com/brow-enhancing-serum-advanced-P302628), and adjust one eyebrow so they're even. Just a quick suggestion. I've been considering doing that as well, and if I'm still not satisfied, maybe I'll go through with something more extensive. It's nice to know I'm not the only one with this issue.

Great words of wisdom.... And here is a but for you re people used to tell u u were handsome. And now u think not as much... It's because u put out the energy that u were not anymore and were looking for people to confirm this "truth" u set for yourself. Before when u were told u were handsome u believed it and expected to have this truth confirmed. It's like " look for the bad an u will find it. Look for the good you will find it" do my advice is start telling yourself I'm beautiful. If people thought you were extremely handsome before. You have to be at Least good looking now right? I think we all are a bit OCD. And we are focussing on this. Just try to turn your thoughts from it. With that said I do think this is a nerve damage thing. Because the muscles an nerves above my right eyebrow constantly tingle and I feel like its tight and so I will get it looked at. But my point is do what u can and Forget the rest. From what I read here we should all get acupuncture to help weak muscles. Make sure we r not getting bells palsy. Or a stroke. Then cut hair to flatter it. And FYI people if you turn your head slightly or always smile on an angle like slight side angle u can never tell in pics. Even head on to camera if you just tilt head slightly it works. Also try hypnotism and here is the kicker. Probebly ever 1 in 3 people have this sooooo it's normal not freakish. Tons a celebritys and models have it. I notice it in soooooo many people. And I asked a few close friends and my sister and I pointed it out and asked if they ever notices it and she said no. Sooooo. We r the only ones staring for hours at it. Most ppl are too worried about their own stuff. To care about ours. So to recap. Try acupuncture. Hypnotism to help muscles. And cut hair to flatter u. And ere is some homework. Find a pic of ur gave hottest celeb and look for their flaws. Scarlett Johnson has totally a crooked smile and teeth. But did u see that before. No. So let's get over it. to get you to forget about it

Wow, i'm so surprised to see how many people have the same problem as I do. I am a 16 year old female, but I do not have any Asian in my blood. My left eyebrow is higher and seemingly shorter than my right one, which is thinner, lower, and slightly longer. It stresses me out to absolutely NO end. When I mention it to my mom or my friends, they insist i'm crazy. Even my twin sister (who has perfect eyebrows) says she cant see it. But like many of you it is extremely obvious to myself. It is becoming more and more noticeable in pictures. The worst part is that I'm a pretty talented singer, and singing uses the brow muscles a lot and since mine are so uneven, when i furrow them, my left one goes higher when my right one goes more straight. When i see people like Ariana Grande, I break down in tears because her eyebrows are literally flawless, as is the rest of her face. If you do not know who Ariana Grande is, you can search on YouTube or Google. My uneven eyebrows are such a huge concern for me, and they lower my self confidence significantly. Everyone else has even, gorgeous, symmetrical eyebrows, why cant I? However, its so nice to see that i'm not completely alone in this.

I have had problems with my jaw for many years. And my back when both are in proper alignment the problem goes away.
Does anyone else notice this?

I've had asymmetrical eyelids since i was born, being half Asian myself. My left lid has a fold when my right one doesn't. And though i don't like the way i look, i've only started talking about it when i turned 20, because i know the only solution is surgery (i know this because i'm (almost!) a doctor :) ), and my family can't afford to pay for the surgery, so i thought why burden them by complaining about something that they can fix? :(

I won't lie and tell you that i've learned to accept it, i don't, i don't like it, and till the day i get it fixed i'll never believe a compliment (i hate compliments, though i get them a lot, i just don't believe them). When i started talking about my eyelids to my parents and close friends, they all told me it's hardly even noticeable, but that's ALL i see in my face in the mirror or in pictures...

I also have strange eyebrows, but that's the salon's fault :)

I'm sorry i don't mean to make you feel bad about the eyelids :( When i told dad about it, he smiled and told me "you're half your mother, and half me, so you have one eye from her, and one from me :) ) Although that is kinda cute, and i know he is only trying to cheer me up, i still don't think i'll let go of the idea of having a surgery to fix it, it's just a drooping eyelid, but it costs a lot though...

Well, have a nice day! :)

Dear Girls!

When I talk I move my left eyebrow so often so its more dominant on my face making it look I have an asymmetrical face.

I found solution in botox. Botox is cheap and temporary. Its been injected on my left eyebrow where I move more so I gave my other eyebrow time to gain muscle. You can also get temporary eyebrow tattoos to make them look more even, or just apply eyebrow liner as you like.
Please think x10 when you're getting surgery (permanent fixes) because it can also mess up more than it fixes in the future.
Lots of love & kisses!
