6 Months P/O Tummy Tuck Still Have A Pulling Feeling?

Prior to my Tummy tuck I had weight loss surgery & lost 130 pounds. I absolutely love my FDL tummy tuck but is it normal after six months to still have a pulling like corset feeling internally?

Pulling feeling 6 months after tummy tuck

Thank you for the question. Some patient may feel the tightness of the abdominal muscle repair for several months after surgery. What you need to do is to communicate you question to your plastic surgeon. He/she know exactly what technique used to repair the muscles and will give you a definitive answer.
