Hard to tell
so the first two weeks after any operation, all sorts of things happen to make you (and us) confused.
Firstly, if yo have some immediately before photos, you should compare to those. Early swelling is common and when this goes down, patients are often disappointed. Don't worry, there will have been some effect for sure, just not what you saw at 48 hours.
Give everything 3 months at least to settle and then compare to you pre op photos and then judge what you have got.
Hope that helps.
