I have had a recurring cyst removal above my canine, and a molar cut out on the lower right side of my face, and recently discovered that I have bruxism. There shouldn't be any swelling from the surgery left after 8 months. Could the larger, asymmetric cheek be from masseteric hypertrophy? What should I do? I visited a plastic surgeon but they literally had nothing to say but "The cheek is larger, come back in six months." I hadn't told them about the bruxism I figured that out afterwords.

The pictures are hard to tell what you are talking about
If your procedures were recent waiting 6 months as the plastic surgeon had suggested is really not that bad of advice. For jowls you can do a face lift, or volumize your face in the right way.
