Possible revision eyelid ptosis surgery
Best to see an oculoplastic specialist for evaluation. You may benefit from revision ptosis surgery or other nonsurgical options. See following link.
Correction Droopy Eyelids (Ptosis Repair)
Thank you for sharing your pictures. At 3 months from the surgery the swelling should be gone and not a contributing factor. You do have some residual ptosis and revision surgery will be needed. At this point you should look for a second opinion. Good luck.
Post op ptosis
You are a little low still - this might improve up to 6 months, but I think you are going to need some sort of revision. The incision seems to be a little high but the scar should improve with time. If you have a revision they can try to use the original lid crease to do the incision which should help.

Unhappy with ptosis repair
Sorry to hear that you are unhappy with the results following your eyelid surgery. There is still time for the scars to improve. It is not clear exactly what surgery was performed. It looks like some skin was excised as well. Speak with your doctor in a few months to discuss possible treatment solutions. Good luck,
