Does BR make your stomach larger

  • Feeling much better after BR
  • 1 year ago

When I had a tummy tuck two weeks post-op my breast grew two sizes.  I went from a size 40DDD to finally a 40m in a matter of 2 years.  My concern is that after finally having a BR is that my stomach would get larger.  I am a month post-op and my stomach is lager not appear larger but actually larger. Is this normal?

I have had the same problem. I weigh ten pounds more than when I had the surgery and it seems to be mostly in my stomach. It has been ten months now since my surgery and I have had an awful time losing the weight. I am going to have surgery again in two days to make some corrections from the first surgery and hope that doesn't make my stomach even larger. Someone told me that their stomach got bigger after the surgery but I thought they were crazy until I had the same problem.

I had a lot of swelling in my stomach after the surgery, I think it was just due to drainage. I couldn't fit into my regular pants at 2 weeks but I am able to now at 5 weeks. I do feel like I have to be very careful about what I eat while I am not able to exercise but I think, at least for me, my stomach size after surgery was all swelling.
