Bigger Now then Before Tummy Tuck - is It Swelling?

I just had a tummy tuck 2 weeks ago, I know that swelling is normal, but I cannot even fit into my "fat" jeans that I wore right before surgery. Is this normal?

Should not have much swelling after tummy tuck.


See your plastic surgeon. You may have a seroma (collection of fluid) after tummy tuck.  If you had liposuction together with tummy tuck, then you can expect more swelling.
