Cannot be very helpful here because I cannot see what the starting point if for you.  In plastic surgery, the starting point largely determines how your outcome will be.  Having said that, based on the photos that you have shown, you would have been better off with a tummy tuck.  Hope this helps.  Good luck.

How to compare?

Without seeing preop photos, it is really hard to compare. I will say that you are still early post-op and need more time to heal and for the swelling to subside.
