Recovery after TT

It is difficult to help guide you without photos but swelling can definitely worsens and improve intermittently in the post-op period. I recommend you visit with your Plastic Surgeon to get reassurance that you are progressing normally. Best wishes.

Without pictures it is difficult to comment on what is happening.  However, even with pictures, the right thing to do is to visit your plastic surgeon.  Don't worry about his disappointment, he would want to know how your result is evolving, and if you are dissatisfied.  Trust me, make an appointment to be seen by your surgeon, and voice your concerns.
Best of luck!
