This is pretty normal for the surgery you had and how thin your eyelids are.

Fat transfer throws an unknown variable into the predictability of recovery from lower eyelid blepharoplasty. Based on pictures alone, no one can say for certain. For instance, this could be normal or you could have inflammation from possible fat necrosis or a fluid collection or abscess. Who knows?
For specific questions like this or about your recovery in general, it is best to speak directly with your doctor or doctor’s representative – such as his or her nurse, or the physician on call for the practice.
You will likely get many different speculative opinions from members of the RealSelf Community, but they have not physically seen or examined you, and nobody knows you or the current circumstances better than your doctor.
If you feel you are not being listened to or you are doubting your doctor’s recommendations, then it is certainly within your rights to seek a second and get the advice from another board certified physician. This should be done through an in-person consultation.
Obviously, if you think that you are having a medical emergency or other serious problem, you should call 911 and/or go to your nearest emergency room.
