Abnormal Vaginal Bleeding after Tummy Tuck--Get it checked out

Your question is dated three months ago, so I sincerely hope you have seen your plastic surgeon and your OB?GYN to discuss this problem.  The tummy tuck procedure is all external to the pelvis, but sometimes after having surgery with a general anesthetic, patients may experience a disruption in their normal menstrual cycle.  If the bleeding has persisted, definitely seek the opinion of both  your plastic surgeon and your OB/GYN doctor to make sure there is nothing unrelated going on.
