You are always concerned about shortness of breath and you have to rule out subtle clots to your lings form blood cklots in your legs so I would see you plastic surgeon or your internist ASAP.

Shortness of breath after tummy tuck.

Shortness of breath after major surgery could be a significant problem.  You need to follow up with your surgeon asap.  If you are not able to contact him/her please see your primary care doctor or go to the emergency room.

 

Good luck and best wishes.

Shortness of breath probably not because of tummy tuck.

You have several problems, and I recommend that you see both your plastic surgeon and your internist soon.
