It looks a whole lot like you had a modified Kuhnt-Szymanowski procedure.
That is a very old procedure where a full thickness excision of the lid margin is performed in a highly visible part of the eyelid. This type of repair was largely replaced in the mid 1980's with a lateral tarsal strip procedure. Unfortunately shortening your lower eyelid is not at all likely to improve your appearance. Rather shortening your lower eyelid is more likely to force the eyelid margin under the curvature of the eye, causing the lower eyelid to ride lower on the eye after surgery than before. Also, the procedure is associated with the development of a notch in the visible portion of the eyelid. What you needed in my opinion was augmentation of the orbital and vertical and horizontal repositioning of the eyelid relative to the lateral canthus. Right now, you lower eyelid are swollen and I believe this is helping your appearance. The question is how will you look in 1,2, and 3 months?

Sorry to say you were never a good candidate for surgery. The expected result was unattainable......
Thank you for your question. Your 'after' photo is hard to evaluate, I would consider retaking and posting a second zoomed in picture. In general at 4 weeks, it is non uncommon to have some residual swelling after blepharoplasty depending on the specifics of the procedure that was done. You are still in the active healing process and final results are best evaluated at 6-12 months. Please update your question so that it can possibly be answered more accurately.
