Way too early to worry

Honestly it is way too early for you to be concerned about your post op results.

Double eyelid surgery needs quite a long time to settle before the final results are evaluated. Wait at least 3 months.

It takes time to see the final results of Asian eyelid surgery

With Asian eyelid surgery, it's important to be patient to see the final results -- there's no need to worry, as you're only 2 weeks post-op. 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, but if you are still concerned in the future, consult the surgeon who performed your surgery.

Double eyelid surgery and expectations

Following a double eyelid surgery (Asian eyelid surgery) it can take several months for the swelling and scars to soften and fade.  It is not unusual for the creases to initially look asymmetrical or uneven at just 2 weeks following the procedure.  Give it time and follow your doctor's advise regarding scar care treatment.  I believe things will improve significantly over the next three to four months.  Best wishes.

Supratarsal crease changes with healing

Your creases will continue to move lower as you heal.  They may not reach their final position for 3-6 months.  The incisions looks fairly symmetric, so I think you can expect improvement as you continue to heal.
