I would like to know if this tummy tuck will have flatter results? Can all this be Swelling alone? (photo)

Swelling versus intra-abdominal fat
It is still early following your tummy tuck so there is no doubt that you have quite a bit of swelling. The roundness that you may still be seeing is therefore in part because of swelling but may also be from fat inside your abdomen or fat outside your abdomen. Once all of the swelling has gone away you can assess your results better. Any fat that you can grab is fat outside of the abdomen and can be liposuctioned.
All the best,
Dr. Remus Repta
