Concerns Following Tummy Tuck
Swelling is normal following a tummy tuck and can persist for some time. Your surgeon should be able to tell you if this is normal swelling or if there is some other reason for what you are experiencing. As always, you should consult with your surgeon and discuss your concerns.
3 weeks post op, some advices:
At this point (3 weeks post-po) the swelling have to be minimal.
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.
