Lower lid issues post bleparoplasty needs plenty of time to accurately evaluate and treat. Your description does not include the time frame after surgery. Edema (swelling) can take one to two years to totally dissipate. The eyelid position also may change with time.

Please consult your surgeon or get a second opinion if you are not comfortable with the answer.
