What Can I Use for my Ultra Sensitive Skin 17 Days Post Op, Mini Tummy Tuck, Breast Reduction, Lipo?

My skin is so sensitive, clothes are painful. Is there a lotion I can use that is safe for these new incision sites. I am so uncomfortable.

Sensitive Skin after a Mommy Makeover

It may be best to contact your plastic surgeon. Depending on the #incision it may be suggested to avoid certain cosmetic products on the surgical sites until they are further healed. Also, perhaps, your plastic surgeon can recommend or provide you a product or pain reliever suitable for you at this time.

Sensitive Incisions Post Operatively

This is not a good question to answer without an in-person evaluation. My recommendation is to you call your plastic surgeon for an evaluation. This may not be anything serious but if I were your surgeon, I would want to see you in my office.

You really need to run this by your surgeon, who likely will want to see your before making recommendations. This could be a result of a medication, but whatever it is will not be resolved online. Call. All the best.
