Typically 6 months after a tummy tuck you should not be experiencing swelling or significant pain. I would revisit with your PS to make sure everything is okay.

Some discomfort is to be expected, even at six months. Most patients have had resolution of most swelling by this time. Without photos, it is hard to offer anything more specific. All the best.
