Hi - it sounds as though you are experiencing usual post operative swelling as you are only 3 weeks post op. I would anticipate the swelling will reduce but this may take up to 6 months as you are healing inside.
3 weeks post op, some advices:
Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.
At this point (3 months 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.
Dr. Emmanuel Mallol Cotes.-
Thank you for your question and pictures. For being only three weeks after surgery, the swelling seems quite normal. Swelling from any surgery can last several months. But, overall you look great for such a short period of time. If, however, the swelling increases significantly, the return to your PS asap.
