Why are my lids getting tighter after upper eyelid surgery? The scar crease is too high in inner corners.

Tightness after Eyelid Surgery
Presuming that your plastic surgeon measured and marked the eyelid area properly, the incision should end up within most of the natural crease as it settles.
You may even experience numbness along the upper eyelash region when you go to put mascara on. This too is normal and will resolve.
It sounds like things are "within normal expectations" at this time.
