Swollen abdomen after a tummy tuck

Swollen abdomen after tummy tuckWhen there are excess skin and fat in the abdominal area, a tummy tuck procedure can be suggested by surgeons in order to make the stomach look firmer. A tummy tuck is a major procedure and may take a long recovery time for patients.

Like with any medical procedure, the body is at risk of developing complications after surgery. A swollen abdomen is a common complication after undergoing a tummy tuck. The blood supply and drainage functions of the body become disrupted from the removal of skin and fat, affecting tissues in the process.

Having a swollen abdomen is possible for different reasons. The bloated sensation that patients feel may be a side-effect of different medications used during surgery. This kind of swelling is usually resolved after a couple of weeks.

The appearance of a swollen abdomen may be due to the accumulation of the fluid inside the body. It is normal for the body to develop fluids during the healing process. Because tissues are cut in some areas, fluid can accumulate and not drain, especially in the incision area as the scar formed stops the fluid from draining. Minor fluid accumulation usually goes away on its own, however large fluid accumulation requires draining via aspiration or drain tubes.

Another cause of the swelling may be due to the muscles in the abdomen itself. As the body heals, it will take time for the abdominal muscles to adjust and relax to the new shape of the body.

The swelling period after a tummy tuck surgery varies on a case-to-case basis as patients heal differently. The swelling is a part of the healing process and will eventually go away as the body repairs the damaged areas. Proper nutrition will also aid in the recovery process.

As a swollen abdomen can stretch the stomach, wearing compression garments help to prevent extensive scarring. These compression garments can be worn after surgery, but doctors must ensure that the garments are worn properly. Too much compression can limit or stop blood flow to the area, resulting in tissue death.
