Considering you are only 5 weeks out from surgery, things will definitely change over the next couple months. First, I'd recommend you discuss your concerns with your surgeon. Second, I'd recommend some gentle upward massage to the lids if you feel they are droopy. Hopefully, the fullness and darkness will improve over time. Wrinkling should also improve as mild swelling continues to resolve, however, a laser resurfacing could be necessary if wrinkling is still bad at six months.
