How much will eyelid crease decrease?

I got a double eyelid surgery done recently, partial incision method. I opt for a 8.5 mm crease and was wondering how much will the crease go down? What would the estimated height of the final crease be. Thank you.

I think you should have had your crease made at 6.5 mm.

The 8 mm crease will look a bit high when everything is healed.  It will take months for the crease to settle.  It will be better in 1 month, 2 months, etc.  Hang in there.  Healing takes time.
