Im 17 days post Tummy Tuck with Liposuction, I have 2 little pouches across from my belly button? Is this normal? (photos)

Pouches on either side of belly button following tummy tuck.
I would however suggest that you have an examination by your plastic surgeon to make sure that you do not have a seroma, a collection of fluid under the flap.
There is also the possibility that there is residual fat beneath the skin that is causing this fullness on either side of your belly button. Only time will tell.

Much may be swelling, and expect it to be several months before resolution. All the best.
