Pain after liposuction, backache
Thanks for the query. It is unusual to have pain after six months of surgery- liposuction. However a clinical examination will help to rule out any local factors at the site of liposuction that may be the cause of pain. You should also have your physician rule out other causes .. muscular, spine problems ... etc that could also cause pain. If all appears clear then a therapist could be of help.

Liposuction 6 mos ago, now with back ache
I would estimate that you did something different with how you held your back or how you slept at night during your post-op period. Or it could be that your back muscles weakened while you were post-op. I think some stretches and exercises to strenthen your back muscles would help. Yoga is good for this.
Liposuction - now have mid-back aching
- You need to be examined to figure this out.
- It is possible that with the fat gone, your bra strap is creating pressure on your back.
- Or you may still be swollen - with fluid collecting in the area and making the bra strap too tight.
- I suggest you see your surgeon for help in diagnosing this problem.
