Eyelid surgery

Though it is difficult to assess from Photos alone, It appears she has bumps on her eyelids. This can appear after surgery from a myriad of causes: scarring, inflammation or infection to name a few. There are many  treatments depending on the cause and thus hopefully this should not be permanent. Some bumps can be normal after surgery can get better with time. She should be in touch with her surgeon or seek an opinion from an eyelid specialist.
