Numbness after gynecomastia surgery

 Since the surgery was not performed on this area it is difficult to determine what the altered sensation could be from. Since it is not a direct result from the surgery it is likely something else that occurred during the surgical process or coincidental. It's best  consult with your surgeon on your particular case.  #numbness #Postop

Numbness in thigh after gynecomastia surgery

The only explanation would be some sort of pressure or positioning on your thigh which put pressure on a nerve. it will probably return to normal over time but it could take months. You should discuss with your surgeon.
