i had a tummy tuck about 6 months ago i have started to go out again and i watch what i eat but like my lager at the weekend i feel i am swelling up round my bust and my back could this be due to my lymph glands being blocked i dont drink all the time and am worried why my bra is getting tight on me after i have paid for this operation !

I'm confused ladies... is it the swelling that is causing it to look so big? Is your tummy still healing?

Hi Lola4 my doc said to me i wouldnt have a stomach like a 14 yr old but it would be flat but its mostly on my right hand side where the seroma was and when i sit down it looks worse its like a jelly i am really upset to think i paid 5000 pounds for this and its not what i expected he doesnt seem to care now hes got his money

It's most likely fat. I have the same thing and they told me to have LIPO. I thought I would be super Flat after but have a ledge just above my scar. The PS said it's fat. LIPO is the way not another TT.
