Will I need another Tummy Tuck???? Skin still loose. (photos)

1 month post op, some advices:
Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.
At this point (1 month post-po) the swelling is normal.
To reduce it, I recommend you perform daily lymphatic drainage massage therapy over the abdomen and wear a postoperative girdle from thigh to the breasts.
If after six months post-op, I recommend you send us your photos again, to give you more information about how we can solve this problem.

Tummy tuck results
I am so sorry that you are unhappy with your results and that your surgeon seems to have dropped the ball on your aftercare. However, 1 month post op is way too soon to judge your final results. You are still swollen and your body is still healing. For now, be patient and kind to yourself. If at 6 months post op, you are still not liking your results then schedule an appointment to see your surgeon.
You are still swollen
We do know your fellings after a major complication like blood clot. Its a complication that could happen at any place of the world. Sometimes it could happen even giving blood thinners after surgery and using antiembolic stocks could happen too.. Its really a risk. No doctor wants this to no patient. Dont torture yourself.
Blood clots, embolisms etc. could happen. We do understand your opinion.
Its too soon to see final result on your surgery, you should be much better on a couple of months. you are still swollen .
About the port, just talk to your Doctor so they dont damage the port.
