Lower Lid Retraction

Hi mariamalbuqish, 
Thanks for you question and photos and I'm sorry you've been struggling with post-op issues. Depending on the type of lower lid blepharoplasty performed and whether skin was removed, lower lid retraction can be a possible complication. At just 6 weeks post-operative, it may be too soon to tell whether this lateral lower lid retraction is permanent. I would certainly continue the lower massages. But I think your concern is valid and it's important that you seek a second opinion with an oculoplastic surgeon. 

I hope this helps, good luck to you!
