your vaginal issues are not due to your abdominoplasty except maybe due to stress. most people who damage their plication will here a pop when it happens. don't worry and keep your follow up appointments
Thanks for your question. Vaginal spotting after a tummy tuck is very unusual and I don't feel it is related to your surgery. The fact that you are not experiencing pain suggests this is not a post operative problem but I would advise you to contact your surgeon about this since you are post operative and if he/she feels its not related to surgery, a consult with your GYN may be in order. Good luck
Vaginal spotting is not related to the muscle repair. It is uncommon to disrupt the repair postop since many sutures are used. Best to you
From your description, I believe that the bleeding/spotting you have is not related to your tummy tuck surgery. Damaging the muscle repair usually results in severe pain.
You are only 1 week out. My patients at this point still have their drains. I recommend you contact your plastic surgeon. He will be best who can evaluate and advice you.
Disrupting an abdominoplasty suture and having some type of vaginal bleeding/ spotting should not have anything to do with each other. If you disrupted some internal suturing, that generally causes some increased pain in that area, and possible a little swelling. I should not effect any menstrual type bleeding. I would discuss this with your surgeon, as well as your gynecologist since it may be that your depo shot is wearing off.
If you have any questions about the integrity of your abdominal wall after abdominoplasty visit your plastic surgeon. It's highly unlikely that anything you would do after the operation would disrupt the repair.
