Left cheek bump post SMAS facelift
It is hard to tell with photos, but the prominence over your left cheek does not appear 'normal' and you should return to your plastic surgeon to discuss what could be causing this bump and what are some options for resolving it.

Without a detail exam and perhaps the op note it somewhat difficult to determine the etiology of your irregularity. The fact that its bilateral and did improve with time suggests that its related to the surgery and perhaps the rotation of the flap. Some surgeons try and build up the area over the Zygoma (high point of cheek) to highlight the cheek and this may represent an exaggeration of that contouring goal
I would suggest you return to your operating surgeon since he or she is familiar with your face and the likely technique used in your case
