Headache two weeks after a tummy tuck
Postoperative headaches are not the direct result of an abdominoplasty.
Headaches after abdominoplasty
If you are prone to migraine type headaches- stress of surgery and the recovery could be acting as a trigger mechanism for your migraines. If this is the situation- refer to your surgeon regarding taking your migraine medications as they could lead to bleeding at the surgical site.
good luck with your recovery!

Headaches are not typical after plastic surgery of the body. This could be related to anesthesia, a reaction to narcotic pain medication, neck positioning during a very long surgery or postoperative dehydration. You should drink plenty of water, and if it does not resolve, see your surgeon and possibly your primary care doctor. Rarely headaches can be caused by life threatening conditions that could be coincidental to surgery and unrelated.
