Some swelling is normal
As you increase your activity after a tummy tuck, it is normal for the tissues to swell, especially near the incision. As long as there is not a large fluid collection, there is no need to drain it. I recommend wearing light compression during the day (spanx/girdle) as this will help with the swelling.
