Eyelid surgery and scarring

You are right, eyelids do not tend to scar if the correct incision are made using minimal and gentle tissue handling techniques.  Asian and Indian skins tend to scar with increase pigmentation which resolves in time (sun avoidance is very important).  Keloids are very rare on the eyelids.  For non surgical options you can try clear tapes which are a temporary fix, otherwise non surgical RF technology can also tighten the skin.  Hope this is helpful.
