Swelling after Abdominoplasty
Thank you for sharing your question. I am sure that your muscle repair is intact and healing fine. It is common to see swelling in the area for several months after having a Tummy Tuck. After about 9 months if the area is still puffy you may need Liposuction. Be sure to discuss this with your Plastic Surgeon.
Best Wishes, -Dr. B.
Post-Op Tummy Tuck Swelling
Your result may improve with some more time. Reevaluate at 1 year post op and there is still some fullness, you may benefit from additional liposuction. Best of luck.
