See plastic surgeon: Most of the swelling is down by a year. This might be an anatomic issue that needs more surgery or scar tissue that can be addressed with a steroid injection. See your plastic surgeon.

This is unusual: Your swelling should be resolved by one year. I would return to your surgeon and ask them for advice.

See your surgeon: Stay healthy and hydrated, avoid smoking, and see your surgeon if you are still experiencing swelling. They can check for a cause or sometimes use medications to help resolve things.
