After eyelid surgery 6 weeks ago, I'm left with a white line along my upper eyelash line both sides. Will this go away?

Incisions fade after 4-12 months. there is always a small scar
I will usually use sutures which will dissolve on their own, without need for removal. Initial mild discomfort is controlled with oral medication.
Patients who wear contact lenses can usually wear them again after 10–14 days.
Swelling, discoloration, and some bruising are to be expected. It is not unusual to have some difficulty seeing during the first day or two after surgery because of the swelling and eye lubricants/ointment used during and after surgery.
Please consider sharing photographs so we can actually have a better idea of what is bothering you.
