Create Layer Mask

After making a selection around the object you have to create a layer mask into that object. After clicking on the layer mask icon you will see that the background has been removed. Now take one solid colour adjustment layer of colour black behind the current layer or under the layer of your selected object.

Double Click on Mask Icon

In this time you may notice some white outline or bumps around your object. Now to remove those thing you have to double click on the layer mask. Now you can see a new pop up box has appeared. 

Increase Smooth

where we have what types of sliders smooth, feather, contrast, and shift edge. Slightly shift the value of smooth. It will make the object edge smooth.

Increase the value of feather, at that point where you found that all of those distortion and the bumps around the edge has removed.

Increase Contrast

Now increase the value of contrast you will find that the blurriness created by feather has gone.
