Does C02 laser reduce elasticity of the face or cause fat atrophy?

I had acne scarring on one side of my cheeks, so I had c02 laser resurfacing done. The doctor was more aggressive with the scared side. It has now been four months and I feel like that side is more "smushy and malleable" or lacks the elasticity/fat of the less aggressively treated side. It is not visibly noticeable, just something I feel when touching my cheeks. I thought this was something that should have actually improved!  Is this something that could improve, even at 4 months post-op? Or am I just being crazy?
