Tummy Tuck Bulges
Hello,Thanks for your inquiry and photo!Since your procedure was so recent, I would agree with your surgeon in saying it is still very swollen and too soon to say. Swelling generally takes 4-6 weeks to subside enough to really tell if there is a complication or not. As long as you're following your board-certified plastic surgeon's post-operative recommendations, you will have good results!
Best of luck.
