7 mos. after bilateral DIEP flap reconstruction, my abdomen continues to be puffy/swollen when I get up in the morning sometimes, after pilates, housework, walking, on my feet much of the day, and at the end of the day. Is this normal? is there anything I should/can do? My PS seems more focused on the results of the breasts!

Thanks for the posted photos. Your abdominal result is excellent and these residual swellings are common. Be happy with this great result.
