Is this an infection after tummy tuck?
Congratulations on having undergone the tummy tuck procedure. Keep in mind, but your plastic surgeon will always be your best resource when it comes to accurate assessment and treatment recommendations. What you are experiencing does occur (not infrequently) after tummy tuck surgery. Sutures may “spit” (come to the surface), may be associated with some drainage, and then “disappear”. Often, superficial wound healing problems associated with these sutures, heal quickly afterwards.
