It is hard to give an intelligent answer to your concerns without seeing before and after pictures. Also it is hard to answer your concern without knowing what technique your surgeon used to do the lower lid blepheroplsty.
It is best to continue the conversation with your surgeon about what is the exact problem you still have and what can still be done about it.

Hi EM1550. There are several reasons why the appearance of bags can recur, ranging from recurrent herniation of fat pads, to bulky eyelid muscle, and excess skin if you have repeated bouts of allergic swelling that stretches out the skin. An in person examination is necessary to differentiate. Be sure to return to your plastic surgeon for a full evaluation and discussion of treatment options. Hang in there,
Eyelid bags can return in some cases
When bags come back they need another operation.
