My laser surgery was just 3 days ago. I have very little bruising or swelling today. However, the skin in the corners of each of my eyes is stretched... reminiscent of the blue woman in Avatar. When I lift my eyebrows the stretched skin look is alleviated. I'm concerned this won't go improve. Is their something I can do about it now? Your opinions would be appreciated.

It's too early to tell. Wait at least 6 months to begin judging the final aesthetic result. Your appearance will change significantly over the next 6-12 weeks, as your swelling/bruising resolve.
