Lump after surgery?

It's hard to picture without a picture, I'd say check with your ps if you are worried.  The weight issue shouldn't be a problem, as your healing progresses your appitite should improve, try protein shakes that can help.  Best Dr K

Sharp Pain and Lump

Thank you for your question.

A photo might help sort this out but the correct approach is a call to your surgeon. Pain and swelling are the norm, but only an exam can help determine what the lump may be and what if anything needs to be done. 

This is a completely appropriate reason to call your surgeon. All the best.

Lumps and Pain 10 Days after Mommy Makeover

     At 10 days, you will likely have some twinges of pain.  However, I really cannot provide any great advice on this without an exam.  Your plastic surgeon should help you sort through these items.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

Without examining you it is hard to comment on the breast portion. I would have your surgeon look at it. As for the weight you have a lot of IV fluid still in your system and it will go down slowly over the first week after surgery. Oddly you do not lose much weight from a tummy tuck. Depending on the abdominal skin removed it is usually only a few pounds to maybe 10 if you had a very large abdominal skin excision.
