Swelling in my tummy after Breast Augmentation
This is very common and is due to the fact that the body is mostly made up of water, so fluid and swelling travels downward. However, let your PS know about your concerns so he/ she can evaluate you.
Along with narcotic pain medication your Plastic Surgeon will typically prescribe stool softeners because these pain medications are known to cause constipation. I will typically advise walking, lots of fluids and stool softeners. Talk with your Plastic Surgeon about your concerns.
All the best
