Thank you for your picture. It is not unusual to have significant swelling after surgery. I would make sure that you do not have fluid versus swelling. Your compression garment is significantly helpful in your recovery to reduce swelling and fluid. Also, it is not unusual to have the inability to stand straight. This usually lasts about two weeks to three if the most. Please consult with your plastic surgeon.

NO! Best to seek immediate in person examinations. Could be seroma fluids causing this issue. Good luck.
Thank you for your question! Congratulations on a nice result. Your swelling is normal and will resolve in 1-4 months. In the meantime wear a compression garment to manage the swelling and for comfort. Best wishes!
