Swelling after surgery
You have a lot of edema (swelling) of the skin above the scar, which is very normal and expected at this point after the surgery. It always resolves and improves, but takes about 4 months to finish. The left side does look larger and is likely because of the hematoma; give it time (months) as it may improve. If not, you might need a revision to even things up.
