I Had a Tummy Tuck W/o Lipo (I Have Leyden Factor V) in August 2010
and wore regular girdle-typebinders until December. I've had swelling and hardness in my abdomen since the surgery. To date, I feel my waist and abdomen are almost as large now (by measuring tape) as they were before my surgery, maybe even larger than the first few days after the surgery. I'm not now, nor have I ever been a large eater but could it be fat I'm accumulating? The pics are before surgery, shortly after, and the present. My surgeon says I need to exercise more, I feel it's swelling.
