Bags after lower eyelid surgery
It is unclear from the limited information in your post how or why this occurred. It could be that only the medial fat pad was sutured to the deep cheek fat so the outer half of the bag did not change. It could be that you are still swollen after surgery and this will look better after some months. It is too bad that your communication with your surgeon is less than you want. Your best bet is to mend your relationship with your surgeon and give this some time to heal. The good news is there is no obvious or visible damage that cannot be reversed.
What kind of surgery was performed?
middle fat protrusions were treated but I don't understand why the lateral areas
are more swollen. I don't know how far along you are in your recovery and don't
know if the lateral areas are due to fat transposition. I don't see how a medial canthoplasty
would help. He know what was done in the first place so if something needs to be reversed,
he would be the best one to do it. If you still are not satisfied and are fairly along in your post op,
seeking another opinion is worthwhile.

However, you have a right to obtain a copy of your operation report so that you can get other opinions. I would suggest you see some very experienced plastic or oculoplastic surgeons to further discuss your problems.
