Prolonged Swelling 5-6 Yrs After Double Eyelid Surgery

Hi, I had a upper double eyelid surgery 7 yrs ago but the results were not ideal as the doctor said my eye muscles that lifts my eyelids are higher than others so i had to do a 2nd surgery. it has now been 5-6 yrs after my 2nd surgery and my right eye is still swollen (not sure if its now scarred tissue) and you can see the conjunctiva. is there anything that can be done?

It is unsusual to have swelling after 6 years post surgery.

Interfering with lymphatic drinage can do that. Seeing the conjunctive??????? this could be a major problem and cause.
