Scarring on eyelids

It'd be hard to answer your question without seeing photos.  However, if it's hypertrophic, you may try kenalog injection to see if the scar responds to it.  If it doesn't, you may need a scar revision with better post-operative scar management this time around.  Hope that helps.
