See your plastic surgeon as soon as practical for the wound to be sutured closed again. This happens from time to time but it should not affect your final result.
Upper eyelid separation
It might be best just to let it heal secondarily. Often this area is quite forgiving and does well with local wound care.
Leave it alone. I used to suture these, but have found that when you just let them heal in you never see a scar and get less inflammation. So I no longer re-suture. But let your surgeon know as he may like to close.
See your Surgeon ASAP. This happens occasionally after an upper lid blepharoplasty, usually in association with removal of a T shirt over the head. If the wound is fresh, I generally prefer to close it. However, it may granulate beautifully.
You should have this resutured to assure that you have the best result possible. While it is safe to let this heal on its own without leaving a scar, the symmetry of the lid folds between the two sides may be compromised. You should see your doctor as soon as possible. Good luck.
Wound separation post bleph
Don't be overly concerned.This will do fine and heal with no problem.Just keep it clean and it will heal well on it's own.
Thank you for your question.
You should definitely seek medical attention by your surgeon. A simple revision can be performed to close the area that has opened up.

it is best to see your surgeon to evaluate the need for suture versus secondary intention healing which usually works well.
