Hello, 30 yr F. Had bilateral upper bleph 6 months ago. 3mm skin removed, no fat or muscle. Before surgery my eyes were big and almond. 2 weeks post op I immediately noticed that my eyes were round and drooping, and my LOWER lids had changed position, to retracted and drooping (slight hound dog appearance). No surgery was done to my lower lids!! Botox to lift outer brows did not help. 6 months later no change. Please, what are all the possible reasons this could happen and what can I do?

Revisional eyelid surgery
Your problem is not typical after upper blepharoplasty. It is impossible to figure out without examination (or at least photo). You see consultation from an oculoplastic specialist.
Lower lid position should not be affected by upper eyelid surgery. Could this be swelling due to other reasons? A proper evaluation in person is needed.
