It's difficult to say what is going on without a physical examination.  Sounds like everything else is healing nicely. I would recommend that you call your plastic surgeon and go in for an examination to make sure all is well.

Most patients who have undergone abdominoplasty surgery return to full activity at 4-6 weeks post-operatively. If you are feeling anything abnormal you should contact your plastic surgeon for evaluation.
