Post operative care after blepharoplasty
You are still very early in your post operative recovery period. There is a very good chance what you are experiencing will get better over the next 1-2 months. It is important to discuss this with your surgeon but using massage on the lower eyelids will help decrease the asymmetry.
Problems after blepharoplasty
You are only 3 weeks out from surgery, so things are definitely going to change over the next couple of months. I would recommend you discuss your concerns with your surgeon. At the very least, some massage of the droopy lower lid can help improve it's position. I also have significant concern that you can't close your eyes completely. Make sure you are protecting your eyes at night with a lubricating gel. You may want to consider taping the eyes closed at night if that's possible.
