S/P chalazion treatment
Stay in touch with your surgeon. He/she can provide answers and advice on your progress. The eyelid might improve with more time. Best regards.
Don't really see too much going on here. The lid crease is a little higher on this side. May have some residual swelling still from procedure one month ago. Give it time and should all even out.
Because the tissues are so thin/soft on the upper eyelid, swelling may persist for months. Daily massage may help, rarely a careful steroid injection may help, time will help. Let your surgeon know your concerns as they know your case best.
It appears that you have swelling within the normal limits of this type of procedure. I do believe that will resume to normal within 3-6 months post operatively. Massage might help reduce that, and you might want to follow up with your surgeon as well. Best of luck.
