How Long Does Tissue Hardening Occur After Asian Double Eyelid Surgery?

I underwent revisional double eyelid surgery and slight ptosis correction in Korea 7 weeks and 2 days ago. I am unable to close my eyes fully--very little improvement. My surgeon tells me that it is because of tissue hardening that will continue until 3 months and then relax. My symptoms should be gone in 6-12 months. Is he correct? One important thing: I can close my eyes almost fully when I wake up in the mornings but then it gapes open later on. Does this mean that my condition will improve?
