6 years post op pain

I had my tummy tuck done about 6 years ago and healed very well. I have little to no feeling from the scar up to my belly button, all over my abdomen. Over the years I would occasionally feel a twitch of pain here and there and chalked it up to the nerves misfiring. But lately I have been having a pulling sensation with pain. It has only happened a few times in the past ...

Hey everyone! So I had a FTT with lipo 3 weeks ago. I had my drains removed at two weeks and 3 days later, I started leaking serous fluid from the incision and it opened up. I have already been seen by my PS and she said it's a waiting game and that it will close from the inside. It gets a little bigger every day and is still leaking quite a bit.. Can anyone ...

Cesarean section after Tummy Tuck?

Did any of you ladies have a cesarean after your tummy tuck?

My TT was done 5 years ago and chances are that we want another baby in the next years. Due to several health reasons it'd have to be delivered via cesarean, but I'm quite worried about that... they would have to separate the muscles and the scar tissue there, which has formed after the muscle repair during TT. I know, this would take ...

Uneven waist 2 weeks postop. Anyone experience this?

No visible asymmetry prior to surgery. No liposuction, either. And my dr took equal amount of skin off both sides.

My waist was actually one of the few things I liked about myself. My left side is still perfect, but my right side now has a bulge on it rather than an inward curve. The reason this concerns me is because there's really no reason there'd be swelling there so I assume its fat/skin that ...
