Upper eyelid surger - one week postop
It is most too soon to speculate on the need for additional surgery. If the extra crease doesn't resolve in 6 months, that would be a good time to reassess your situation. If your lid levels do not elevate in that time frame, you may need ptosis repair. Best wishes.
Without seeing any pre-op photos it is difficult to assess accurately. You are very early in the healing process, Asian blepharoplasty can take up to 6 months for all of the swelling to resolve. Once your surgeon feels you are totally healed, residual skin can be removed. I would definitely voice your concerns with your surgeon at your post-op visit to remove the sutures.
I would not recommend any more surgery right now until the eyelid is well healed.

Post upper lid bleph
Without having seen your preoperative photos, it is difficult to make any definitive statements. There is definite asymmetry of the eyelids. Not only is the swelling below the incisions asymmetric with the left being more swollen and red, but the fullness above the incisions are asymmetric. The left upper eyelid is much fuller. The absence of fat and hollowness of the right upper eyelid is what is causing the second line above the incision. To balance the eyes, I would recommend an autologous fat transfer to the right upper eyelid. But you are still early in the healing process and I would typically not recommend any additional treatment for at least 6 months after surgery.
