1 month post op, lower lid is still pulling down after revision: What can I do about it?
You were "corrected" way too early.
Retraction of Lower Lid After Blepharoplasty
I agree with Dr. Morgan. I certainly would not consider any more surgery for at least 4-6 months. In the meantime you can apply upward massage on the outer lower lid several times a day. Occasionally this can help. If this has not improved by 6 months a lateral canthoplasty to gently elevate the canthus and plicate or tighten the orbicularis muscle should fix your problem. Give it some time though, as it may improve.
