Normal That my Stomach is Itching All over 2 Weeks at Tummy Tuck?

It doesn't itch where the incision is but it itches all around it and is it safe to stop wearing a binder?

Itching 2 weeks after tummy tuck

It is quite common to experience itching after tummy tuck due to histamine release during the healing period. Generally this resolves by 3 weeks. However there can be other causes such as medication allergy which shoul dbe discussed prior to dismissing your symptoms.
