Unhappy with tummy tuck at 8 weeks

  • It is natural to be concerned at this stage of a tummy tuck.
  • A lot is changing but you don't have your final result.
  • The belly button is likely to end up as you wish. 
  • Skin wrinkling can happen around liposuctioned areas.
  • Be patient - and don't even think about it for another 4 months.
  • Then see your surgeon - and go over what you are happy with and, if anything, what bothers you still.
  • Best wishes.
