Dear Vaibhav, Twenty eight days post surgery is very early in the recovery phase to determine your result. You still have swelling that will take a full year to fully dissipate. I would see your surgeon for a post operative examination and discuss your concerns. He/she knows best where you are in the recovery phase as well as what your proposed surgical plan was. I personally use a digital imaging computer during consultation so my patients and I have an understanding of what the proposed and expected results are. Depending on what you discussed with your surgeon prior to surgery and what your expectations of the aesthetic changes are will be best discussed with your surgeon. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
