Is a skin pinch the best option?

I recently (8 months ago) had a lower transtransconjunctival blepharoplasty with Co2 laser resurfacing and muscle tightning..canthopexy..I believe its called. A bit of fat was taken out (not that I had much to begin with) and now my eyes a bit more hollowed out and extra skin exists. My doctor suggests a skin pinch to remove this extra skin...and if need be later a fat graph. Is this right? What are the changes getting a droopy eye at the bottom or complications with the skin pinch.Is there another solution..I went in to get rid of minor lines and am left with a bigger problem now. I just want a long term solution...as Ive been crying over this.Im only 36 and very scared..any advice?

Careful evaluation and planning should minimize your risks however. How about a second round of CO2 laser?
