still swollen
Had TT and lipo in March at first stomach flat and loved results but past month stomach looks as if nothing was done, my stomach is swollen and looks like it did before surgery. Am hoping that the belt helps but at this point i just want to cry.

It's really sad to hear this. You should contact your surgeon as soon as possible before it get worse.

Had my TT in March was happy with results, in July looked as if I hadnt had the procedure at all, stomach was extended i saw my surgeon in August and he said was due to weight gain, I had lost 15 pounds since procedure..He then said that I wasnt following diet or exercising..Both of which i do, have another appointment in mid-October and at this point i do not want to go back as I feel that whatever went wrong he does not want to take responsibility..:

I just had a TT done in September. My surgeon told me that swelling can occur up to one year after surgery--usually after intense activity. Is it possible you tore an internal suture? That can cause a bulge as well...

Good luck.
