Tummy Tuck - post surgery effect
Your surgeon sounds like he is on right track. Work out to tone the muscles but if the bulge persists, and it's not muscle bulging, then I would liposuction the area as some of the areas are not really safe to liposuction during a tummy tuck. I would wait a year though to give it adequate healing time. Best Wishes!!

Your question is a good one for so many thing change with our core musculature and contour with a tummy tuck. Sounds like your surgeon has one good idea about doing some more liposuction, but I would also suggest you both look closely at your preoperative and postoperative photos for you stand with a bit of a sway back posture which can give the appearance of a more prominent abdomen from the posture of your back. Sounds like they are on top of your options.
