Scarring after Double Eyelid Surgery
The incisions after blepharoplasty or double eyelid surgery usually fade within the first 4-6 weeks but can take even longer. Redness along the incision line is common following surgery and from your photo does not look concerning at this stage of your healing. As the incision line undergoes collagen remodeling the incision should appear and feel more smooth with time.

Eyelid skin is extremely thin, so some bumps for a few months is completely normal. The redness and bumpiness is usually completely gone in 3-4 mo, 6 mo at most. When you have very fair skin the redness may be a little more noticeable in the beginning. You look like you are headed for a great result. Jane.
