I really feel like my crease is too big for my eye. Do I Need a Revision? (photo)

Way too early to worry
Asian blepharoplasty [eyelid crease surgery] can take several weeks to normalize and the eyelid creases ALWAYS look way too high early in surgery. I would recommend patience [at least 3 months] before worrying about revision surgery.
Redness is quite normal and can take 3 months or even longer to fully go away.
It takes time to see the final results of Asian eyelid surgery

i'm sure things will continue to improve and do not jump ahead and do a revision to early.

In the early post-operative period, the crease will always appear somewhat high because of swelling from the surgery. As the swelling resolves your crease will settle into its final position (which may take up to 3-6 months depending on the technique used).
Wait for it to completely heal
This is a very common concern directly following a blepharoplasty. However, it is very important to wait for healing to occur before undergoing a revision. I would recommend waiting at least 2-3 months before making that decision. But in any case, it is always best to speak directly with your surgeon about any concerns you may have.
