Can vomiting and diarrhoea damage internal tummy tuck stitches?

Sorry about your illness. It is very unlikely at this point to hurt those sutures. If you did, you most likely would have a new abdominal bulge. I hope you feel better soon.
Vomiting after tummy tuck
Hello, thanks for the question and I hope you're feeling better. Although I think it would be unlikely that your sutures would break as a result of severe vomiting, it is possible. Soreness may be expected due to vomiting, especially after surgery, and does not on its own suggest an issue with the plication sutures. I recommend that you schedule an appointment with your surgeon so that he/she can examine your abdomen and see if there has been any change since your last visit. Best of luck!
