Swelling Creates Volume
You pose an interesting situation, and I’m sorry for your disappointment. Once surgical procedures are done such as blepharoplasty or face lift in particular, there is swelling that creates volume, and many times, that additional volume creates a more youthful and natural look. This is especially true in facelift surgery where 6 months later the patients may look skeletonized and volume deficient whereas after the first month look great.
I would speak with your doctor regarding your concerns. Often there are ways to correct if volume is the issue to add volume to the area around the eyes. Injections and fillers around the eyes are off-label and need to be done by an expert. It is difficult to tell from the photos. There are malar bags called festoons that sometimes appear after surgery, and they may have been there the entire time but have been uncovered once other areas look better. Festoons can be treated in multiple ways including several advanced radiofrequency devices that we use. Best of luck!
