Swelling after Tummy Tuck
It is not normal to have swelling 6 months after a tummy tuck. I would re-visit your surgeon to assess for a seroma (fluid collection) or muscle laxity. Good luck.
Bulging of the abdomen after tummy tuck may be caused by seroma, lax muscles or excess intra-abdominal fat (visceral fat). In-person examination will help clear the issues.

Thank you for sharing your question. It is not uncommon to go through periods of bloating but without an in-person examination it is difficult to offer definite advice. This may also indicate a fluid collection or continued muscle laxity. I would see your surgeon for an in-person examination for the best reassurance.
