Blisters after Tummy Tuck
1 week post op, some advices:
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.

It is likely that your blisters may be due to tape over the incisions. The friction harms the delicate incision, resulting in blistering
Finally, make sure that your doctor is aware of your process. He should be able to guide you best in your care.

Blisters along the incision line
Blisters can be the result of an infection, an allergic reaction or stress on the skin caused by tension or even tape. If you have multiple small blisters along the length of the incision line, the most likely diagnosis is an allergic reaction, perhaps to the tape, ointment or bandage that is being used. With the information provided, it's not possible to make an accurate diagnosis or comment on treatment. I would certainly recommend that you follow-up with your plastic surgeon at your next opportunity.
