Five weeks post-op massage scar with coco butter as directed by PS. I felt a pop inside?

While massaging scare felt several pop noises. Scare tissue or sutures? I did not have any external sutures.

5 weeks post op felt pops as I performed scar massage

Thank you for your question and congratulations on your tummy tuck.  After five weeks your incisions are well on their way to healing and any sounds you may have heard were likely the result of sutures dissolving and popping.  Assuming there has not been any change to your physical appearance, all is likely well.  Certainly inform your surgeon of this episode.
