Tummy Tuck Swelling
Everything looks normal for 4 weeks. I'm not sure if the bandaid indicates that a seroma has been drained or not. If so then draining again my be necessary because they can occur, but generally at a smaller amount. The swelling otherwise is normal.
Swelling after TT
You look quite good and it appears that you may have also had recent breast surgery which migh tincrease overall swelling. Keep the salt intake low, wear a garment but not a really tight one and exercise if it is OK with your doctor. I think you will have a great result.
Everything looks perfect for one month
Thanks for the question! Looking at your picture and the time period , you look perfectly fine. Swelling and stiffness takes close to 3 months if you have undergone lipoabdominoplasty. Please take care of what you eat and start with 45 min walk a day, it really helps mobilize water from edematous area and also relieve the stiffness. You will certainly love your body at 3 months but you need to work out too for that perfect shape, your surgeon has done his bit with perfection and its your turn to shape it up to perfection by good balanced diet and excercise as recommended by your trainer.
