Will I healing symmetrically after Asian eyelid surgery
From your photos it looks like you'll probably heal well. Things always look a little asymmetric during the healing process after Asian eyelid surgery. I think the only thing you have to be concerned about is how defined the creases are with time. Very early so try to relax and just follow-up closely with your surgeon.

Healing takes time
With this type of surgery, it's important to be patient to see the final results - 3 days post op is still way too early to predict the results of your surgery. Your concerns are relatively common at this stage and not anything to worry about. Swelling tends to subside after the first week or so. Also, remember that the scars will heal in the coming weeks and months, so the whole process is more like a marathon than a sprint to the finish line. You should be quite satisfied with your results in the long run. If you feel concerned over your progress, I would suggest booking an appointment with your plastic surgeon as he/she would be the best person to provide you with accurate information on your healing progress.
