Could this be a pseudobursa? I'm now 6 months post-op Tummy Tuck on the 24th. (photos)

Post op swelling
You could have broken your sutures holding your muscles in place. That is one explanation for the belly swelling. It could still be postoperative swelling. It could also be a seroma or fluid collection, which would best be determined on exam. A pseudobursa is a lining formed around a chronic seroma.
