Wound issues after blepharoplasty
It looks like you have a mild separation of the wound edges and inflammation of the surrounding skin. Fortunately, with good local care and possibly oral antibiotics, eyelid incisions generally heal very well even if there is an infection.
I would clean the incision at least twice daily to keep the crusting away, and apply a small amount of antibiotic ointment (I like Bacitracin) after each cleaning. It is very unusual to get a bad scar from blepharoplasty, but it can happen. If you do get a bad scar, a scar revision by excising a small amount of skin may be needed, although that should not be done for many months after the first procedure.
