Lower blepharoplasty complications: I can still see a little when I close my eyes

I had lower transconjunctival blepharoplasty with skin pinch 9 weeks ago both bottom lids are retracting they are so retracted it has caused me to not be able to close my eyes all the way due to my lower lid being down so far. When I have my eyes closed I can still see out of the bottom of my eye. It has caused major sleep deprivation. Surgeon advised to massage the lower lid up five times a day for one min and release and repeat five times. I didn't have any issues sleeping until after five weeks and for the last month it's been a nightmare. I am not sure what I can do.

A scar developed underneath your transconjunctival mucosa which causes your problems. Most likely this will be fine again after healing process has completed and the scar tissue becomes soft again. This might take about 3-5 months. If therafter the problems still exist, corrective surgery should be done.
