I had a tummy tuck a month and a half ago. The results are very nice except that my pubic area seems bigger than it did before my surgery. Is this normal and will it get better?
There are 2 reasons that this may happen. 1. The surgeon may not have done liposuction in this area. This is standard in my tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) procedure. I do this for a smoother, more polished result in the lower abdominal area. 2. The other reason is that you may have some additional temporary swelling due to surgery, and time will be required for more fluid (lymph) drainage systems to develop to drain that extra swelling. However, if the swelling has not resolved in 3 months, it is time to re-evaluate for liposuction in this area.
