Muscle repair with lipo post op, some advices:
At this point (3 weeks post-op) 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.
If the after six months post-op, I recommend you send us your photos again, to give you more information about how we can solve this problem.

What should I do?
Thank you for the question and photos. Swelling and hard, puckered incisions are normal at 3 weeks post op but if you have new/increasing pain or one side seems to be growing larger, I recommend that you ask your Plastic Surgeon to assess you in person.
All the best
