Swelling after abdominoplasty and liposuction
Swelling is normal after any surgery, and a full tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and liposuction may take several weeks to months for the swelling to resolve completely. If you are concerned about the size of your abdomen after 6 months, you should consult with your surgeon for evaluation.
Enlarged abdomen after liposuction and tummy tuck
If you have not gained any weight, then you should not be enlarged, unless there is increased gas. See your surgeon first, then see your primary care doctor.
