5 weeks post op, some advices:
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.

Post abdominoplasty pain
It is not uncommon to have soreness and pain (nerve pain such as shooting pain or itchyness) for several months after liposuction and tummy tucks. It is impossible to say if there is a problem without doing a physical exam.
This is one reason most surgeons suggest doing surgery locally for follow up issues.
Best of luck
