I had a tummy tuck with muscle tightening and a breast lift with implants in May. I am in love with the results but i still have some pain in the abs. I work out alot and I was wondering if that is causing pain. Also, I scar pretty bad so I was also wondering if the pain could be from scar tissue. I am more than willing to get used to the pain for the results I got but I am just worried that it could mean something is wrong. The pain goes vertically along the center of my abs (which is where they were sutured I assume). I am aware that some things just take time but I am just making sure this is normal. I was afraid when I started working out that it would rip if I started to early also. -- Updated on Oct 30, 2009: I had a tummy tuck with muscle tightening in May. I am ecstatic with how it looks but I have been having pain down the center of my ab muscles. I started working out again (situps, lifting, running) about 6 weeks post op and it is very uncomfortable but pain is something I can handle. If it is normal than I am ok with it but I am just concerned that something may be wrong. Is it normal to have pain in the ab muscles from the tightening? Could it be from scar tissue? Should I expect it to subside in time?
He is very informative and very easy to talk to.
