Persistent upper eyelid swelling after a lower eyelid procedure is unusual, but at this point I would wait for up to a year.  I have seen swelling improve over that time period.

Persistent swelling after multiple eyelid procedure is not unusual. Becuase of scarring from previous surgery, a longer recovery is not unexpected.  All the best.

Without knowing what you specifically had done, I cannot speculate on this answer.  I suggest you discuss your concerns with your surgeon as he/she knows exactly what was done and can provide you the information you seek.
