i had excess and protuding abdomen.the bulge ws nicely taken off. but the top part of the abdomen became round and firm. the ends of the incision also formed dog ears that seemed like nipples. when i asked my doctor about this said they can be easily suctioned off at a later time. but that means another payment, because it is a separate procedure. most importantly is the breathing discomfort which i'm told will go away, but hasn't.
HAD MY TUMMY TUCK 9 WEEKS AGO. STILL EXPERIENCING BREATHING DISCOMFORT , WORST AFTER EATING. TOP OF BELLY IS HARD RIGHT ABOVE MY NEW NAVEL. HOW LONG WILL THIS TIGHTNESS LAST? it is very uncomfortable that it takes away from the merits of the procedure. infact sometimes i feel so tight i can feel my heart beat. I am 54 yrs old. is this normal? or should i be worried? I was in excellent health prior with no cardiac history. will appreciate your advice.....EM
