Seroma in pouch, vagina swelling or saggy skin?
Hello dear, thanks for your post. Is really normal to be swollen after a tummy tuck. Some of my patients have had success in reducing the swelling by having lymphatic drainage massage treatments and using the compression garment. Be patient-it takes a good 3 to 6 months for swelling to go down. But I recommend to follow you PS instructions. Good luck :)
That is probably just swelling since it resolves in the morning. A seroma is a fluid collection that wouldn't come and go within a day. Swelling can take months to improve after this operation.
