I had a c-section 9 years ago and while I am thin and in shape I had a flap of loose skin above the c-section scar.
I had a mini tummy tuck done 3 weeks ago. There was a lot of swelling that occured after the drains came out (2 days).
Last week the doctor tried to aspirate - not much came out while I was in the office, but it drained after I left, the remained of the afternoon and stopped sometime during the night. This relieved quite a bit of the discomfort from the swelling.
There is still quite a bit of swelling. This swelling seems to be causing a lip or hang over the incision. I am afraid this is going to remain permanent and not heal to a flat stomach. I am bigger now than I prior to surgery. I look worse now than before. I can't fit into my clothes.I called the doc and have requested to be aspirated again. Is there anything else that should be done to help the healing to avoid a lip over the incision?
