Swelling vs Fat
Swelling after tummy tuck
There are several possibilities that might explain your swelling. It's entirely normal to have swelling in the front lower part of your abdomen for months following surgery. Often this swelling is worse at night than in the morning and eventually disappears. A different type of swelling is called seroma which is a fluid collection that might need to be relieved. See your plastic surgeon who will know what it is and what to do.
