Could my stitches after abdomioplasty have come undone?
Doctor Answers 4
It is unlikely at this point that sutures have come undone, shooting pains here and there are very common with increased activity after a tummy tuck. However, redness, constant pain or increase in pain, or a big difference in the appearance warrants a trip back to your surgeon for evaluation.
Tummy tuck concern
Thanks for your inquiry. Without an exam it is impossible to tell if you should be concerned about anything, but it is very rare to disrupt your muscle repair 3 months after surgery. Call your plastic surgeon to discuss, good luck.
Rupture of sutures after TT?
At three months, it is unlikely that you have disrupted the sutures. I don't understand exactly what "lightening up" means exactly, but usually people hear and or feel a "pop" when sutures break.
I would recommend that you stay calm, and schedule a follow up visit with your doctor to double check.
All the best.
