Can an oculo


After a double eyelid surgery is performed by a plastic surgeon, but then a complication arises that the original PS does not know what it is. Then going to an oculoplastic surgeon, can this surgeon know what went wrong with the surgery even if he did not perform it? Or do I have to ask exactly what the original PS did to both eyes to give as info to the oculoplastic? My PS seems to be confounded by the problem I'm having and doesn't seem to want to look into it further for me..thus, I have lost some degree of hope.
