The shape of the eyelids should not be affected by blepharoplasty. By removing the skin on the eyelids, the eyes can appear bigger (which most people like). However usually over 6 months to a year there is a some reduction of the openness of the eyelids. We would have to know more information such as when your surgery was etc.. to answer more definitively.
