Upper eyelid symmetry/shape 2 weeks post-op; will I likely need another procedure? (Photo)

Post-op upper eyelid blepharoplasty
Two weeks is very early - you will likely notice improvement in the appearance and symmetry over the next few weeks. Once the incisions fade and thin, you may find that you may not need or want additional surgery. Stay in touch with your surgeon for follow-up. Best wishes!
It is only two weeks after your surgery. Try to be patient

It is still too early to determine if you will need a repeat procedure. In your picture, your right upper eyelid does appear higher than the left, however I generally tell my patients that we cannot assess the final position of the eyelid until about 4-6 afters the procedure. As your doctor recommended, I would continue massaging the right upper eyelid as this can help relax the eyelid to a slightly lower position. In order to determine if you will need a repeat procedure, your doctor will want to wait until all the swelling has settled. The earliest this could occur would be at least 4-6 weeks after surgery.
