Yes those plastic surgery text books describe the upper eyelid incision as needing to be place too high. Often they describe that the incision should be marked at 10 mm above the eyelashes. With healing this can stretch up to 12 mm. This is too high. I general recommend to the residents I train to place the upper blepharoplasty incision in women at 7 to 8 mm. In your case, the incision look like the are 14 mm above the lashes. At this point, all one can really do is let the tissues heal. With time, this harsh appearance often does soften. If not, there are options available. Hopefully you will not find it necessary to explore these.
