I'm sorry you have had some problems after your procedure.
From your pictures, the most visible aspect of your scars seem to be their redness. The good news about this is that redness nearly always improves significantly over time.
The time frame until your appearance is the best it is going to get is actually at least several months from now.
My experience with the eyelids is that scars in this area tend to mature well and become much less noticeable with normal scar maturation. You don't seem to have heavier scars which can be problematic in terms of the eyelid positioning itself which is good.
I know it is difficult to be patient at a time like this, but please be assured that it is likely your final appearance with be much better after a few more months of time. Please be especially careful to avoid sun exposure to your scars.
I am optimistic for you having great improvement over the next several months.

The answer to your question is that your scars will improve over time and will likely continue to soften and fade over the next year. The laser and silicone modalities can help expedite the improvements. If you feel good about who is managing you then stay put..if you decide to look for a second opinion find a dermatologist who manages scars.
Good luck ..you will get there.
