Pain and a lump after tummy tuck/lipo.
Pains come and go following tummy tuck surgery and these are normal. Persistent pain should be addressed, particularly any hip pain that radiates down the front of the leg. As for lumps around the belly button, these are common and usually flatten out over time. Close follow up with your plastic surgeon is advised.
Pain post tummy
Sounds like this is okay.The lump may just be a collection of fluid and will go down in time.I would recommend heat and massage.follow up with your doctor.
Pain at hip after tummy tuck
At eight weeks post surgery, the nerve endings may be coming "back to life" after the swelling subsides. But, I would state that without an exam it is difficult to suggest what is causing your pain. You should see your doctor.
