Ledge above TT
I would want to assure that you are not having a surgical complication, such as seroma or hematoma that is causing this. Either can be treated without redoing the entire procedure.
If the procedure was not properly planned or carried out, it may well be that a good outcome will require redoing the surgery.
Please consider reposting your question with photos. Thanks, all the best.

One month is too early for intervention but I suggest you consult a board certified plastic surgeon near you for examination, diagnosis and recommendation.
