Upper tummy tuck swelling

Does anyone get upper tummy tuck swelling when they sit for periods of time. When I sit now i try to sit in a chair that leans back vs one that sits upright. I feel like the top part of my tummy swells and it makes me insecure that I’ll end up with an upper stomach area that looks like it wasn’t lipoed. When I lay down for a while on my back it seems to flatten out again

    Then it’s not just me Ugh… In the morning I feel my upper ribcage (feeling so thin) then after sitting a while I feel so bloated and swollen there, I wonder when we will feel normal again. I took 2 months off I’m almost 1 month but I don’t feel well enough to work out yet

  3. Shalako says:

    No not just you! I’ve been at work for a week now and and I get so bloated from sitting even walkin around doesn’t change it much! I can’t wait to feel normal!
