I had a tummy tuck on January 17, two month ago. My belly is swollen and I feel that it is more swollen than what it was a month ago. Does the swelling after a tummy tuck vary from month to month? And at what stage will I see the most swelling in my belly?

Swelling after tummy tuck
Did you have a muscle repair with your tummy tuck? It is not unusual to have a bit of swelling after a TT, however, your pictures reveal an overall swelling. Is there some fluid present (seroma)? Talk to your board certified plastic surgeon for further followup and solution to the problem.
All the best,
