Did you get the procedure done under General Anaesthesia or spinal anaesthesia? Please check with your doctor. Itching can happen at incision site for two reasons. 1. Allergy. 2. Wound is showing signs of healing. In any case its better to check with your doc.

That does not sound like it has anything to do with the tummy tuck surgery. I would follow up with your surgeon and have him look at the area of concern.
