Thank you for the question. It really to early to determine the results. Usually, the first two to three weeks after surgery the swelling is maximal then it starts to go down. Generally speaking it can take up to six months for the swelling to subside. 

In the mean time my advice for you is to patient, address your concerns with your plastic surgeon and keep all your follow up appointments.
