Recovery after upper eyelid surgery

It is difficult to evaluate any results of upper eyelid surgery 5 days after the procedure because there still is swelling present and this will affect the appearance of the eyelids.  With more time, the swelling will go down and your eyes will look much different.  I cannot give you advice in regards to fat removal and the placement of your crease without seeing pictures of you before the procedure and knowing details of what was done in your surgery.
