10 weeks post op tummy tuck swollen

I’m 10 weeks since my tummy tuck surgery, everything has gone well. However I do feel that I am still swollen, above my belly button and below my belly button not as much as at the beginning but it’s still swollen. I have no pain at all just the same tightness feeling. I’ve read that it depends on each person for the healing process. Please advise if this is somewhat normal or should I be concerned?

It is not unusual for swelling to persist for 3-6 months following an Abdominoplasty. If you are concerned I would recommend a follow up visit with your surgeon. A good physical examination will assist in determining a cause.
