My right arm/fingers are numb after my procedure
Thank you for your question and I am sorry to hear of your symptoms. There are a number of possibilities that may account for your symptoms - bleeding/bruising into the hand, placement/positioning of the arm during surgery, or shoulder and neck positioning. If you are not seeing any steady improvement on a daily basis have your surgeon refer you to a specialist, either a neurologist or hand and upper extremity surgeon for evaluation and management.
Numbness in Arms and Fingers Post Op
It is not common to experience the #numbness you mention in connection to Mommy Makeover Surgery. However, it is best to consult with your plastic surgeon and perhaps a neurologist to further investigate the origin of the issue of concern.
Mommy Makeover - Upper Extremity Numbness
Thank you for your question. Sorry to hear of your post-operative symptoms. This is most likely related to the position of your upper extremity, neck, or shoulder during the surgery. However, this should improve gradually with time. If it does not, I would have a second opinion with a hand/upper extremity surgeon for evaluation. Hope you feel better.
I am so sorry to hear that your arm is till numb. There could be any number of reasons. If you feel that it's truly not improving, ask your surgeon to refer you to a neurologist to get checked out.

Decreased right arm function after mommy makeover
I'm sorry to hear about your dilemma. If you're still having decreased right arm function two weeks after surgery I think this warrants a valuation. In my opinion, if you should be referred to a hand and upper extremity specialist for evaluation. Please discuss this with your plastic surgeon. Best wishes.
Hello and I am sorry to hear about your issue. It sounds like you may have a neuropraxia, which is a abnormality in the conduction through the nerve likely from the position you were in for nine hours. These types of nerve injuries will often spontaneously resolve with a tincture of time. No need to worry yet.
The numbness could be from positioning during the surgery, but make sure your plastic surgeon is aware of your issue on an ongoing basis.
