Allow 6 to 12 weeks for all or most of the swelling to be resolved. Seeing a current photo would help. One concern would be a fluid collection (seroma or hematoma) which can be a cause for swelling that begins several days after surgery, and which would need to be addressed. Check in with your surgeon.

 

Best wishes.
