Bump after under eye-bags surgery. Does it look swollen to you? (Photo)

Normal healing process
This early in the healing process you will certainly have swelling and scar tissue that masks your result and cause asymmetry. This is a part of recovery and is to be expected at this point after a blepharoplasty. Be patient with your recovery and give your body time to heal. Be sure to keep any follow ups you may have with your surgeon for his or her advise and evaluation. Best wishes.

Eye surgery recovery
This can still be residual swelling from your eye surgery. Continue to follow the advice of your surgeon to optimize your recovery and your results. Healing is different for everyone and having some swelling at this point is not uncommon.
This looks relate to how the skin was positioned into the wound edge.
This typically does settle but it can take more than a month. Time is remarkable in helping these look better. I suspect that this will take several months to resolve. This will heal with or without massage.

Swelling after blepharoplasty
Thank you for your question and photo. It appears you have residual swelling of the eyelid and the incision. Everyone heals differently. Some people have very little swelling at this point, but other who are more prone to swelling to begin with will still have significant swelling that can take longer to abate. Keep in contact with your surgeon, but your eye does look like it will see significant improvement as the swelling subsides. All the best!
Swelling in lower lids
It looks like some swelling right at the corner of the incision. There may be a buried stitch in there. It should improve. I would have m patients massage the area to flatten it out, but check with your surgeon regarding this.
