Abdominal growth post abdominoplasty

Unsatisfactory mid-sectional dimensions after abdominoplasty can occur for several reasons. Acutely, there may be retained fluid collections (seroma/hematoma) . But later, increasing girth is usually a result of weight gain and can be corrected by weight loss. Occasionally, there can be inadequate muscle plication, especially in those rare cases in which a surgeon may have used a disolvable suture to repair the muscle separation (diasthasis).

I would recommend looking into the Tupler method. Tell Julie that I referred you. She has a whole program to help with that.

Flattening your belly after tummy tuck?

Your tummy should be flat after a tummy tuck; the fact that you are not flat is concerning; you may have residual fat or maybe your muscles were not tightened properly; muscle work should not be needed to have a flat belly. A consultation would be necessary to provide a definitive diagnosis.
