Numbness and change in sex drive after liposuction

Thank you for asking about your liposuction.
  • I am sorry to hear of these changes.
  • The numbness may return since after seven months all the swelling may not be gone.
  • However liposuction cannot directly affect sex drive -
  • But surgery can upset hormonal production of various kins.
  • I suggest you get a second opinion on the result of your surgery to see how you are healing
  • And have your regular doctor assess you both for hormonal malfunction including thyroid function and for depression.
