I had a tummy tuck with Lipo of the hips and flanks 11 days ago. He used the incision for the opening for the Lipo. I am now having a sharp burning pain whenever I move on my left hip scar site. It feels deep like it's on my hip bone. Will this go away? What is it?

Pain over hip after tummy tuck
Occasionally, patients can have pain over one hip after tummy tuck and liposuction of the flanks. This is because there are some sensitive nerves in the area. For most patients, this gets better with time. Good luck.
