Hips swollen, bruised, and threaded with new stretch marks
- Last updated: 10 months ago
My hips and butt were really nice before I got my mini tummy tuck (and flank lipo) 4 days ago. Now my hips are gigantically swollen, bruised, and marked with wiry marks that look like stretch marks (which I've never had on my hips before). Obviously I'm swollen all over, and I expect that, but I'm worried about how this has made my hips swell so dramatically and made my butt look squished. It is not a cute look and I would not have chosen to give up my nice butt for less of the small amount of extra skin I had on my tummy. Please tell me this happened to some of you too and you got your hips and butt back soon after surgery!!
