Changes in swelling associated with your menstrual cycle is normal. If you surgeon prescribed postoperative garments, these may help control the swelling. There certainly is no reason to be alarmed. A quick call to your surgeon should reassure you and quell your anxiety.

Thank you for your question. What you are describing sounds fairly common. Swelling is normal for several months following a tummy tuck. The amount of swelling can change from day to day, even morning to evening, based on activity level, fluid shifts, etc. Are there any other symptoms which have developed in the last few days such a fever, nausea, change in appetite, drainage from the incision? I would advise you to contact your physician about your concerns, he/she may suggest that you come into the office for follow-up. Good luck
Congratulations on an excellent result. Your swelling and bloating are normal with postop recovery and your menstrual cycle. Each week and each month will be better. Best wishes on your recovery.
Swelling is normal after any procedure. It can take the body anywhere from 6 months to a year to fully recover and to see final results from this type of procedure. I would not dwell on these changes, but consult with your physician to ensure there is no bigger problem.
The body tends to hold on to fluid immediately after an operation. This process can wax and wane for weeks after the procedure. Which are experiencing is quite normal.
What you describe seems entirely normal after a tummy tuck. Check with your surgeon to ensure that nothing else is going on. It is normal to have swelling come and go for several months after an abdominoplasty.
