You don't look very swollen. Your left upper lid incision is a bit lumpy as though you had a sensitivity to the sutures, or they were left in too long. This skin usually heals very well, so with time and a little massage that scar should flatten and even out. For the lower lid you may have had it done from the inside of the lid, or had an incision done just under the lashes. This usually heals quickly so often can't see the scar. You are still early in the healing phase so be patient.
You appear to have a normal amount of swelling, this will take 6-8 weeks to completely resolve. The incisional thickness and puckering is not abnormal, it make take several months to resolve but I think you will have a good result. Try to relax, good luck, Jane.
