Swelling or uneven? (Photos)

thank you for posting your pictures. 4 weeks postop is still early and it is difficult to judge. Some of the differences you noted can still be related to postop swelling. I would discuss your concerns with your surgeon. But even if a revision is considered it would be to early. After 1 year the healing process is completed, and you will be able to assess the final result.
I hope this helped a little.
One month post-op, having looked at your photos, it's possible that there is a permanent asymmetry. However, swelling can persist asymmetrically for months, so I would recommend waiting at least six months. Your body may resolve this during the coming months. Also, if a revision is needed, it is most safe and predictable after one year has passed.
