Lump Over Mons After Tummy Tuck
Generally, part of a tummy tuck procedure involved tightening the abdominal fascia, or "inside" girdle to flatten the abdomen and thin the waist. Many surgeons,myself included, use permanent suture to perform the tightening. I suspect the lump you are feeling is the knot at the end of the suture. Another possibility is that you are feeling some swelling from a drain sight. Let your surgeon know. They may be able to remove or bury the knot, or treat an area of swelling.
