Hello I live in Miami and the surgeon I went to is one of the best in Miami. I'm 1 month and 2 weeks post op is my stomach swolen on the sides, why does it have that bulge look and will it go away after proper healing. By the way I had TT with lipo on sides. Maybe It's just me but would like other opinions please.

Swelling after tummy tuck
If you are concerned over the swelling, which is not that abnormal up to 3 months post op, why not see your surgeon. He or she is local and at this point I think it would be good for you mentally to be reassured. Sometimes you form a little fluid collection called a seroma which may need to be drained, but if it is that it can be taken care of and you'll feel better. Good luck.
