No photo so please recognize that these are general comments.
Regarding your recent surgery, it is hard to comment definitively without the benefit of see your photos or examining you. It is likely that things will improve as you are only 2 weeks out. However, I think it is improbable that the lower eyelid will come further up. If you do need revision, you will need an approach that is much more comprehensive than simply repeating the fail canthal surgery.
