A tummy tuck can be done as a solitary procedure. Many times the results are enhanced by adding liposuction to the hip and love handle area. A tummy tuck is also done in combination with a breast augmentation in a mommy makeover.
Please find an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and member of the Aesthetic Society using the Smart Beauty Guide. These Plastic Surgeons can guide you on all aspects of facial surgery, breast augmentation and body procedures including tummy tucks or mommy makeovers!

Thanks for your question.
I'll be honest with you, if you already had your surgery and you're happy with your surgeon, the best place to seek for answers is with him/her.
Without photos, it's hard to answer, but it could be only swelling (it's not in vain that we recommend using garments 24/7 for the first month). Anyways, it could be more than that life an infection or seroma. The best thing for you to do is contact your surgeon right away for any doubts you may have.
One recommendation I always tell my patients is to have at least 2 compression garments (binders), so that situation does not occur.
Have a great recovery and take good care of yourself,
Dr. Fernandez Goico
