Because it's been 7 years ago, I believe it is prudent to obtain a new set of x-rays. They will show how the bones have healed, the integrity of screws and plates, and overall shape of the bones. I suspect the bulging on the side may be due to the bony overgrowth. If the bones are in good condition and well contoured, then, it may be due to the soft tissue problem. But first, I believe you need to make sure that the bones are in good shape.
