I had a mini tummy tuck 3 weeks ago. This week I have been having pain on the left side of the incision. No swelling or redness?

Thank you for your question.
Since there has been a change in your post op course, please contact your surgeon so he/she can examine you and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan at this time.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.

Thank you for your question. It is very important to refrain from heavy exercise or activity in the first weeks after the procedure. Your surgeon will tell you exactly what to do and what NOT to do. Best of luck
Hello and thank you for your question,
It is a good sign that you have no redness or swelling. You could absolutely cause some damage if you don’t follow your doctor’s instructions on what sort of activities you can do during your healing process. I usually tell my patients to take it easy for two weeks post-surgery, no strenuous activities. If you are feeling pain that you are concerned with I highly suggest going back and speaking with your doctor. The doctor who performed your surgery would really know best as to why certain areas are hurting you.
