Hey, there is no question that you look better with the surgery.

If you think about the aging process, we don't gain weight around the eyes. Rather, there is facial sag that makes the eye bags appear more prominent (look at a baby) and laxity in the orbital septum/skin that is holding back you eyebags.
I think when all is done swelling (which I would wait a full 2 months), you could consider fillers to your cheeks carefully placed to tent up the periocular skin area.

you are healing well. The swelling may take longer, you have to be patient. Follow up with you surgeon regarding your treatment.
Swelling after lower blepharoplasty
Thanks for your question and photos. It is really early to tell exactly how things will turn out. A blepharoplasty swelling can be gone in a couple of weeks or last months depending on how your body heals. It certainly looks better but NOT perfect. You seem to have some residual fat and/or excess skin laxity. You may benefit from some filler to improve the nasojugal fold or crease you see in your photos. But the only person that knows what was done is your surgeon. Please seek their advice as to see what you may need, filler, time, or skin removal in the future. Regardless of what it looks like now, the issues can be corrected in the future if necessary. Please be patient and discuss your concerns with your plastic surgeon! I recommend lymphatic massage in the mean time to help remove some of the swelling that may remain! Good Luck!
All the best,
