What is the cause of "cow lashes" after lower blepharoplasty? (photo)

"Cow lashes" are heavy straight eye lashes.
Healing after eyelid surgery
At 5 months after eyelid surgery there may not be much improvement. It appears based on your photo that an anterior approach was performed. It may be that your lateral canthus, the outer part of the eyelid may need some additional support. When I perform lower lid surgery with significant adjustments then canthal support is very important. At 5 months post surgery I think you should expect a clear answer and plan from your original surgeon or be prepared to get a second opinion from a board certified plastic surgeon with interest and experience in eyelid surgery.
Best of luck to you.
Eyelash position after lower lid blepharoplasty
Scar tissue can cause various forms of entropion or ectropion after blepharoplasty. 5 months is still early in your recovery. This usually softens over time.
To be sure, follow up with your surgeon and have all your questions answered to your satisfaction.
I hope this helps.
