5 weeks post op, some advices:

Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.At this point (5 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.
Kind regards,
