Your results pretty good. You have some pleating around the incision. This pleating should relax over the next several months. I would wait at least three months to judge the final result.

19 Days After Tummy Tuck Wondering About Revision
There are a lot of emotional ups and downs after surgery. But your photos look very good for 19 days. It is way too soon to judge if any revision might be needed. Skin pleats and swelling and rippling can all be normal, and generally resolve on their own.
Be sure to see your plastic surgeon regularly to be evaluated and reassured.
Best of luck.
Tummy tuck healing
- For 19 days, your tummy tuck looks great!
- The hard areas are normal. You have lots of stretch marks - your skin has lost some elasticity.
- Not to worry - wait a full six months before thinking about a revision.
- In the meantime, if you can get fit and lose weight, you'll have an even better result. Best wishes.
I had a full tummy tuck with muscle repair 19 days ago, with hips added. Do I need a revision? Does it look normal
Great series of post op posted photos, BUT no befores??? Next ONLY 19 days!!! Allow 6 months healing than you can complain if you see an issue...
Hello and thank you for your question. From what I can see your result looks excellent. Give it a bit more time (3months) and I believe you will be very happy.
