Redness and Tenderness Caused by Tight Garment After Tummy Tuck?
I had a Tummy Tuck on June 11th, and a follow-up on the 19th. My umbilical sutures were removed and everything looked really good so far. However last Saturday (20th), I noticed a significant redness flaring up from my belly button, so my surgeon prescribed me an antibiotic just in case it was a bacterial infection (not likely, no oozing, etc). I was wearing the garment very tight. Could this red tenderness or bruising be from that? It's still pretty red today. Does this sound like it's from wearing the garment too tight? The photo is a little lighter.
