What would cause such a deep fold of skin when a tummy tuck is done? (photos)

It looks like you have some areas with ischemia (lack of blood supply to tissue), it could just be bruising but I would try to see your surgeon as soon as possible. Good luck, Jane

Thanks for your question! That fold certainly doesn't seem to be normal. However, you are only one day out. Let it settle for awhile and see if it goes away. If it doesn't go away after a few months, yes then it will definitely need to be addressed. Of course, at this early post op stage, you should be in close contact with your plastic surgeon anyway, and I would definitely bring this concern up to him/her. Best of luck!
