Post 18 days ptosis and upper blepharoplasty surgery; is it still swollen or do I need revision? (Photos)

Is my ptosis surgery a failed one. Its almost 3 wks since my surgery. Im seeing one eye big n one eye small. Why is it this way? Is it still swollen or i need a revision? If revision pls tell me when i can do it? Any alternative other than surgery, im so scare to go thru another surgery now. Originally my eyes were better than this.

Still swollen

Significant swelling is normal and to be expected after Asian eyelid surgery, especially if an incisional technique was used.  Once the initial swelling resolves in 1-3 months the crease (if properly created during surgery) should become better defined.

Do I need a revision of my eyelid plastic surgery?

Swelling at this point, for your type of eyelid surgery is normal, and I do not see any need for concern based on your photos. Discuss your concerns with your surgeon.
