Displaying Document File Size

I’m trying to display the file size of a file next to a media link button on a page.

I have two content types with a media entity reference field in each. Each field is restricted to only pull from a file media type. What I was trying to do was create a twig variable using a field preprocess and pop that variable inside each of my field templates. However, my preprocess below doesn’t seem to be displaying the file size as I want. What am I doing wrong?

function theme_preprocess_field(&$variables, $hook) {

  $pdf_fields = [

  if (in_array($element['#field_name'], $pdf_fields) && $element['#entity_type'] == 'node') {

    if ($variables['items'][0]) {

      $field_name = $element['#field_name'];

      $node = $element['#object'];
      // Get first referenced media id.
      $media_id = $node->$field_name->target_id;
      // Get file object.
      $file = \Drupal\file\Entity\File::load($media_id);
      if ($file) {
        // Get file size.
        $file_size = format_size($file->getSize());
        // Set file size variable.
        $variables['file_size'] = $file_size;
