"Small Bump” after Tummy Tuck?
Thank you for the question.
Unfortunately, you do not provide enough information for a precise answer. If the “small bump” is along the incision line, then this is very likely related to a superficial stitch. Sometimes stitches come to the surface and are associated with some drainage. This is easily treated by your plastic surgeon who is in the best position to diagnose/treat you.
If the small bump” is elsewhere along the abdominal wall, the differential diagnosis is quite long.
I would suggest following up with your plastic surgeon for evaluation.
