A photo would be very helpful.  However, I would tend to agree with you that if you have scleral show now, it will unlikely improve on its own if there is no significant swelling.  The best advice is to get a second opinion.

At this point is reasonable to consider a second opinion.

The inferior sclera show is likely a complication of the transcutaneous lower blepharoplasty.  The fact that you also had a fat grafting may or may not have any bearing on the lower eyelid position.  There may very well be some softening of the eyelid appearance in 6 months.  The real question is would you benefit from any treatment now.
