I'm one week short of 3 months post-op... while my right side is fine, my left side still sticks out more (although less than before surgery)... I still wouldnt be confident enough to take my shirt off in public with it looking this way though.

It still feels sore when I raise my arms above my head, for example, so is there a chance it will go down, or will I need to go for a revision? Will dieting or losing weight help?

its difficult to say, it can go down and it may not. it could be fluid in there. it can be dry blood that makes it big. wait a couple of months and see if it goes down and if it doesnt go see your ps and let he check it out.
i finally feel like im a man

To answer your questions,
Dieting and losing weight will help your overall health, but not your swelling.
A compression shirt and massaging might help.

I stopped wearing the compression vest at 8 weeks. I dont know if this is swelling or not, as I understand, swelling feels pretty hard, but this doesnt seem hard at all...

my crease was there right after surgery and then it disappeared and now it reappeared.I loose skin i was told should not be a factor but i'm starting to second guess that beause when i pull the kin tight it disappears.
