Hard to explain without more info. This could have been a small cyst or fluid collection. Hopefully, you will continue with a uneventful recovery. Best wishes.

Lump in Center after Tummy Tuck Disappeared. Reason?

The healing process creates firmness and in some areas lumpiness. This can happen particularly when there has been some liposuction in the area.  This is a normal part of healing and as a general rule, is gone by 2-3 months after surgery.

       This one is difficult to answer with this information.  The hard area could have been developing scar that was massaged to become softer during the cleaning.
