Still fat 4 days after tummy tuck
I would suggest you not get caught up with measurements or any other means of evaluating the results of a tummy tuck a short 4 days after the procedure was performed. Focus on your recovery and feeling better each day. Due to swelling and other issues the final results won't occur for at least 3 months, and expect longer for the incisions to fully mature.
Have a question?
Ask a doctor
Still fat after tummy tuck, will it get better?
Although I cannot provide you with advice specific to your situation, I can tell you that generally speaking the vast majority of patients who undergo tummy tuck surgery are very pleased with the long-term outcome of the procedure performed. I can also tell you that it is very common for patients who have undergone these procedures to experience significant emotional “ups and downs” postoperatively. At this point, I would suggest patience and close follow-up with your plastic surgeon. Generally, it may take months for swelling to resolve and up to one year for the abdominal wall skin to "redrape".
I encourage you to be patient, the final results after a Tummy Tuck may take a good 3 months, specially if you had some liposuction done.
So, do not feel discouraged, be patient and follow your doctor instructions. You will be loving your results.
There is hope and fixation for everything!!!
Have a great journey.
