NEED SOME HONEST OPINIONS LADIES.... The puffiness around my whole scar, does it ever go completely down?? I know I'm only 6 dpo and swollen.. Has anyone had this and it eventually goes down?

It will absolutely go down. My swelling peaked around 7-8 weeks. I'm 12 weeks post op now and I have turned a corner on the swelling. So exciting! Hang in there!!!

Can you give me more details on your doctor? Where did he do the surgery? Did you have any lipo or muscle repair?

Yes, the puffiness will relax, the scar will be flat or close to it and integrated nicely with your skin. It will take a loooong time. Be patient. You look great!

I'm 20 days PO and I am very swollen. I get down about the swelling because I see others have almost instant flatness and I'm on the island of swell hell but I do see it going down. It's up and down though. Alot seems to depend on how much I do on a given day, what I eat and some of it just is there. I saw my PS yesterday and she said that swelling happens and it will eventually go away. Hang in there. You look great!

It will definitely go down! At only 6 days PO you're still fresh from a very traumatic event (as far as your body's system is concerned). Its very normal to be swollen particularly along the incision line. Try to ignore it for now and relax as much as possible, your results look great and they'll only get better as time goes by :)
