Photos posted could ONLY help us advise. At 11 weeks postop if there are "bags" advise you obtain a second opinion.

Persistent bags after eyelid surgery

  You are almost at 3 minths and that is a reasonable amount of time.  Obviously, you are thinking that the doctor did not adequately correct the under eye bags.  My best advice is to consult the operating surgeon, look at the before photos, and vocalize your conderns to him.

Lower lid "bags"

A photo would be useful.  The "bag" could be fluid (festoon) or fat or skin or other.  Talk to your surgeon or consut an oculoplastic surgeon.

Photos are immensely helpful here.

At 11 weeks, please do not expect your bags to go away as you heal more.  It is likely that you bags are malar festoons that were not addressed by your original surgery.  Lots of surgeons do lower eyelid surgery but very few lower eyelid surgeons actually understand what they are doing.  Even if you have a great relationship with your current surgeon, if motivated, you might consider some second opinions.

Bleph Upper & Lower with Canthopexy

While there are many reasons to have bags after surgery, such as persistent swelling, or fat that was left behind it is hard to give an accurate opinion without looking at your photos.It would be helpful to see front, three quarter and side pictures of both eyes.
