Swelling 5 1/2 years after a tummy tuck

There is no swelling left 5 1/2 years after an operation. In general it looks as if your result is fairly good. Some revision liposuction may well help recontour things and improve the appearance. A consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon is going to give you your best recommendation at this time.
