Given your hernia repairs and abdominal contouring procedures, you will have swelling for several weeks to months after surgery.  Please followup with your surgeons to make sure everything is OK.  wishing you a speedy recovery.

Within abdominoplasty including repair of three hernias some discomfort is expected for several months after the procedure. The trend however should be favorable.
