- Pain after a tummy tuck usually lasts 5-6 days,
- Numbness is from swelling and will last months, and may not fully return until 6 months or longer,
- Skin tenderness can be from irritated nerves or from a garment that is too tight. Best wishes.
How long before I feel sensation and for my skin not to feel so tender?
