Botched upper blepharoplasties

can be repaired with skin grafts, usually using skin from your other eyelid if there is excess present or the lower lids.  The amount of ideal skin for grafting is limited.  Best to see a local plastic/oculoplastic surgeon for further advice and recommendations.

There is no easy way to restore upper eyelid skin after a surgery if too much skin was removed.

A picture would be helpful here.  If you truly had too much skin removed, the only solution would be a skin graft.  Unfortunately these never look great cosmetically.  You should see an oculoplastic surgeon in your area to see if they can help.

Otherwise, our answers need to be so vague that they are probably not very helpful.

Generally, it is not really possible to restore an upper eyelid fold that had been completely removed by the eyelid surgeon.  If that is your situation, the game is basically over.  If the fold is still there but you have some other issue, it is possible there is help.

I would suggest you see a board certified plastic surgeon in your area that performs upper blepharoplasties regularly. Or an Opthalmologist that specializes in plastic surgery procedures. You may need a skin graft, scar revision. Unable to say any treatment that is definitive without you having an examination
