Bulging after a Mini Tummy Tuck
Mini TT Bulge
Based on the picture, I don't see any evidence of muscle repair. If you had mini tummy tuck, you likely just had skin excision and some lipo. I don't see any muscle definition. If you had a true muscle repair, your abdomen / tummy would be much flatter and you would not have the bulge that you see which extends from your pubis to your chest. I would clarify with your surgeon if you had a muscle repair and if so, how high the repair extended.
