Incision bump after eyelid surgery
It does appear that you have a small scar at the outside (temporal) edge of your incision. This bump does not appear to be related to excessive skin and is likely the result of a minor trauma that occurred at the time of surgery. Another consideration is that the bump may be due to a retained or permanent deep suture. If a suture is present under the skin, it should be removed through a tiny incision. Otherwise the injection of a low strength steroid, possibly combined with 5-Flourouracil (5FU), will likely flatten the scar - especially if the injection is combined with twice daily light circular massage. If possible, I would return to your original surgeon. If that is not practical, find a surgeon in your area that is qualified and experienced in cosmetic eyelid surgery. Best wishes.
