Revision blepharoplasty/canthopexy. What should I do now?
I don't know who you have been seeing but they are not getting the job done.
You need to heal from this recent surgery. If you are having eye comfort issues, work with your general ophthalmologist immediately for lubrication measures to keep the corneas from drying which could lead to cornea break down, infection, and visual loss.
I am sure your surgeon have done what they can. However there is now a accept method of repairing eyelids with these issues. You need to find surgeons who specialize in the repair of eyelid issues after cosmetic eyelid surgery. This can involve spacer grafts, vertical cheek lifts. It is likely you will have to travel for this type of work. There are really only a handful of surgeons who offer this specialized care.
Please do not ignore your psychological health. In my experience, this type of result is associated with severe psychological stress including clinical depression. Mental health professionals can help you deal with the emotional trauma associated with these situations.
