Should I see some difference right away? The swelling is almost gone and my bottom eyelids still look wrinkled.

Hello MIAM200-
I assume that you are relatively early in your postop course. If this is the case, be patient and give your eyelids 2-3 months to heal. If they still worry you at that time, ask your surgeon and get a second opinion.  
Good luck.

Photos would be helpful

Recovery time after eyelid surgery varies greatly between individuals. The upper eyelids heal very quickly but complete healing of the lower eyelids can take six weeks if the muscle and fat are treated.
