Post Op Healing
At 9 days post-op, it is still common to see and feel bumps and irregularities along your incision line. Although they removed the visible stitches, which did not dissolve on their own, the healing process is still very early. Usually the incision flattens and softens with time, as most scars do. The eyelid skin is very thin and generally heals very well to the point that most incisions are barely visible. If you are still concerned, speak with your surgeon.

Blepharoplasty Incision line
It is not at all unusual to have some irregularities of the incision line at 9 days post-operatively infact some people can have it a lot longer than that. Everyone is different so its hard to give an exact time line of when it will go away. Most of these just need time to heal. I think you should be okay in the long run. I would definitely discuss it with your surgeon the next time you see them. Hope this helps.
