2 weeks post op, some advices:
Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.
At this point (2 weeks post-po) the swelling is normal.
To reduce it, I recommend you perform daily lymphatic drainage massage therapy over the abdomen and wear a postoperative girdle from thigh to the breasts.

Thank you for your question. Please contact your board-certified plastic surgeon's office and explain your concerns. She or he may wish to move up your post-operative appointment by a few days if it is determined that your concerns about suture removal are warranted. Very good luck to you.
