Too early to tell but possible concern
After that, things often turn hard and lumpy.
This phase lasts about six weeks.
The final swelling will settle down, and typical results will be seen at three months, though some changes may be seen as long as six months after surgery.
The area you depict may have been treated somewhat unevenly.
At this point, your only choice is to wait to see what your results will be.
Usually patients just need reassurance at this time.
Every once in a while, we need to do minor revisions to even out results.
These are typically not a big deal and often done in the office.
My personal revision rate is around 10%.
In my opinion, if I revise less, I'm probably not delivering the best that I can.
Most likely your results will continue to improve.
Stay in touch with your surgeon.
Best of luck,
