Asymmetry after Asian eyelid surgery
Post op asymmetry is most commonly due to unrecognized and untreated preoperative asymmetries, usually related to an unsymmetric weakness of the eye muscles (ptosis). The problem looks worse during swelling and then improves over several months, sometimes many months. I would recommend close communications with your surgeon until the problem is resolved, usually by waiting it out. The lash eversion that you're referring to may resolve as the swelling goes away, unless the surgeon used a more aggressive technique to clear out that area as part of the crease operations. I would have a discussion with your surgeon on this matter as well.
