Sudden Bulge 4 Weeks After a Mommy Makeover
It's possible that the #bulge is #swelling or fluid. Healing will continue for 2-3 months for the early period. This includes some swelling, bruising, malposition, color differences. Sensation in the breasts may also be abnormal and scars will be evolve. Tingling, burning or shooting pains in the breasts will disappear with time and should not alarm you. It is simply a result of the regeneration of your sensory nerves. If these sensations cause pain, repeated, local self-massage per your surgeon's permission may help. The purpose of the post-procedure #garment is to provide some gentle #support and to reduce swelling following a #TummyTuck or #Abdominoplasty. If it feels too tight or causes pain, take it off. Patients wear the #elastic garment for several weeks after surgery, as directed by their doctor. Some choose to wear it longer for several months for comfort.
If you have concerns about your #healing, or pain that you question to be unusual, it is best to call your plastic surgeon to discuss these further asked to be examined.

Dog ear will probably require surgical revision.
It would be very rare for there to be any internal surgery performed directly on this area when performing a tummy tuck and I can't imagine that this is a seroma or haematoma but you are probably best to see your PS and be reassured.

If so, it will hurt for about 3 days, then pain subsides and swelling does too.
Call your surgeon to be sure he agrees.
