Swelling 5 weeks after a Tummy Tuck

It is very normal to have post-op swelling 5 weeks after your surgery. It takes several months for all swelling to subside. I recommend following up with your plastic surgeon for examination.

Without a posted before photo can not advise. Could be swelling, seroma fluid, etc. Best to obtain IN PERSON opinions.
