Thanks for your question. It is common to have residual swelling of the abdomen and mons area after a tummy tuck. Firmness in the tissue under your incision is normal as well. Typically, your abdomen has less sensation after a tummy tuck. All of these concerns- swelling, firmness and numbness usually lessen significantly over the first 3-5 months. I usually recommend wearing a binder for the first 4 weeks. It doesn't hurt to wear it more and some patients find it comforting to wear it longer. I always recommend discussing your concerns with your surgeon and making sure he/she doesn't have a reason for continued use of the binder.Good luck with your recovery !
