I had a tummy tuck with muscle repair almost 4 months ago. My stomach was generally flat before the procedure; I only had massive stretch marks and "loose" skin from 4 children. There was no liposuction needed.
Right after surgery my stomach was nice and flat, but about 6 weeks after (once I stopped wearing compression garment) my stomach started to developed a pooch. It's flat along the inciscion line and then about an inch from that all the way up past my belly button, I look like I have a 3 month pregnant stomach. It's also very hard and when I flex my stomach muscles it is very hard,not soft, to present a fatty area.
My surgeon said it was just the anatomy of my muscles. I'm not overweight and have not changed in weight since my procedure more than maybe 2 pounds. Is there a problem? I feel worse now then I did before.
