For one month following surgery, this looks pretty great. Always reference the defect and think about how amazing it is to have the outcome you are seeing right now. Certainly, things will improve with time, but invariably these flaps may require scar revision procedures or resurfacing to enhance the appearance. Hydroquinone may also help your case. Discuss with your surgeon. Good luck moving forward!
