Still have prominent eye bags after lower bleph (5 weeks post surgery)? (Photo)

Lower lid bleph
It looks like residual retroseptal fat has remained and a revision to remove additional fat would be beneficial. As far as when to proceed, swelling has to be fully resolved. It varies from patient to patient but eight weeks should be fine on average. Best wishes, Dr. T.
Timing of lower eyelid revision
You are best to wait at least 3-6 months after the initial surgery, before considering a revision. You should take pictures to monitor the progress or to see if anything settles further.
Repeat lower blepharoplasty
It appears you still have under eye bags/fat but best to wait about 3 months after first surgery before doing second surgery. See following link.

You are too early in the post-op period with swelling being the most common thing to determine whether a revision or not is necessary.
