Swelling two weeks Post FTM surgery
Swelling 2 Weeks Post FTM Top Surgery
Swelling a few weeks after your surgery is not unusual. In fact, #swelling is normal and usually increases slightly after the removal of any tape or foam. The majority of the swelling will be gone within the first 3-4 weeks. However, it may take 6-9 weeks to disappear completely. A #compression garment, if prescribed by your surgeon, will help to reduce the swelling, and the longer it is worn, the more quickly you will #heal. It can also assist in the retraction of the skin. If you have any concerns about #healing, its best to ask questions of your surgeon or their nursing staff.

You are still very swollen. This looks like normal healing but check with your surgeon to be sure. Be sure to visit a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in top surgery.
