Tightness after surgery

The amount of discomfort you feel after surgery will gradually decrease as each day passes. Tighteness is common right after surgery, but this should resolve itself in a couple of months. If you still feel tightness and it’s been several months after your surgery, then you should see your surgeon for an assessment.

It depends...

It depends on how far out you are from surgery? If its recent [within a few weeks to a couple of months], then it is probably normal post op swelling and healing.

But if its happening more than 3-4 months out from surgery, then its probably something that may need to be looked at a bit closer.

As always, please discuss your post op symptoms with your surgeon as he/she is the only one that truly knows what was done during the surgery.

Since you had surgery a few days ago, your healing sounds normal.  Be sure to follow up with your Plastic Surgeon for post op care.
