Go back to your treating plastic surgeon
It is very difficult to say what you are feeling without an examination and knowing what exact methods were performed at your surgery. I would strongly advise you to return to your treating plastic surgeon for an evaluation. There are several things that this could be including “internal scarring”. Again, your plastic surgeon is the most qualified to definitively answer your questions.
MIdline firmness after a mini tummy tuck
The midline firmness that you may be feeling could be the plication of the muscles in the midline. An exam would be more definitive.
Fullness and firmness in mini tummy tuck incision (scar)
The firmness could be normal and the result of stitches or a dead fat. However, it could also require aspiration and/or drainage. Your surgeon will be the best judge of that.

Internal scarring after tummy tuck with liposuction
After a mini tummy tuck with liposuction, patients will have a significant recovery process. During the early-stage of the recovery period, patients can expect swelling bruising and some areas of firmness. These areas are your own tissues healing and recovering after the trauma of surgery and liposuction. With time, these areas will soften and these symptoms will go away. Your best bet is to use a compression garment at all times. My patients report that when they sleep with their compression garment, then wake up fully compressed and this gives them a head start on the day. If you continue to have these firm areas a deep massage may be beneficial.

See your surgeon
For post-operative issues like the one you describe, you are best off seeing your original surgeon. He or she knows what was done exactly and what was used. Not all operations are alike.
