Normally you should notice results within a month or two, so that is right around now. It's more likely that the surgery didn't give you the results you wanted, so you may be looking at another surgery if you want it to look different. The amount of time after the accident shouldn't make the results different, as it's a malformed area from the accident that needs to be fixed. There are a few surgical treatments to help, though I'm not sure it will look exactly like the other eye, even after surgery. Sometimes it might not be possible to have your eye look completely "normal" after a bad accident. It can be hard to come to grips with that you may not ever look exactly as you had before, but it does happen at times. You can talk to your doctor about options and what they think is best for you. See what they have to say and then weigh your options. good luck!
