Swelling after tummy tuck
Hello there. It is normal to have swelling after tummy tuck. Immediately after your surgery, you would not see swelling right away. You see most amount of swelling between 1-2 weeks postop; then, you should see the swelling decreasing gradually. If you were happy with your result 2 days after your procedure, I think you will be happy with your final result in 3-6 months. You should continue with compression garment as instructed by your plastic surgeon. Best wishes.
