My eye feels swollen since I feel like I somehow injured the underlying tissue. Did I ruin the work of my surgeon? (photos)

Scarring after revisional Blepharoplasty
The scar appears mildly raised and hypertrophic.It is unlikely that this happened in a short space but probably as a result of the surgery. A variety of things can be done to help this settle down. Time itself will improve it considerably. Injection may help somewhat. Certainly there is possibility that it may require some minor revision such as laser or other. I do not believe that she did anything to make it worse although the question including the statement "I did something to it" makes me wonder. I suggest she return to your surgeon to determine if something other than watchful waiting can be done.
Scars can change throughout the healing process, which can take 3-6 months
