You need to be patient. Everyone looks distorted at your stage and it takes time for the swelling to resolve. Give it at least one month to see good improvement. Start to worry at 9months!

Hi Michelle,

Sorry for your early disappointment with your eyelid surgery. Be patient, it does take time for eyelids to heal after surgery. Most of the time the early asymmetries resolve over time. It should be at least 6 months before consideration of revision eyelid surgery should be entertained.

Good luck and be well.
