Surgery and Recovery
Thanks for your question!
To first address your question about the laxity of the skin, it is normal to have swelling many months after surgery. The full duration of recovery could last up to a year, so it is a possibility the area is still swollen from your procedure. Your surgeon is the best source of information for your specific case since they worked intimately on your procedure and your body.
Additionally, your doctor can recommend creams and/or oils to apply to the skin to decrease the appearance of any marks from stretching or scarring.
Best of luck
