Tummy Tuck: Q&AAsk a Question
What Could Be Causing my Upper Abdomen to Swell After Tummy Tuck?
I am 9 weeks post tummy tuck, my upper abdomen (between my belly button and under my breast) seems more swollen at times, usually in the afternoon. I am still wearing my garment during the day, my surgeon said to wear it until week 12. Please advise?
I saw my surgeon, he thought could be fluid but he checked and there was none. The only other answer he gave is that my muscles are weak. He said he tightened them and it is impossible for the stiches to come off so that is not what is causing the upper bulge. Just looking for other advice, Thanks.
