Cold Fingertips after Mommy Makeover Surgery

Cold #fingertips following a Mommy Makeover is not common. It's best to contact your plastic surgeon to discuss further or seek advice from a specialist accordingly. A neurologist may also be suitable.

Finger tip cold?

Need more information to help you.  This is not normal and I recommend you see your surgeon to have this looked at and addressed.  Some causes could be preexisting carpal tunnel, positioning issue during your surgery etc.  Have your surgeon help you.  Hope this helps.

Post-op cold fingertips

It is very unusual for a woman to complain of coldness in her fingertips after mommy makeover surgery. There could be several possibilities regarding the cause of this sensation, and most likely it is a temporary sensation. You should contact her plastic surgeon to go over the methods of looking into the cause of this problem.

Mommy make-over -- my fingers are cold

Thank you for asking about your mommy make-over.

  • Cold fingers are not a common response to a mommy make-over.
  • You may be dehydrated or anemic
  • Please let your surgeon know -
  • If you were my patient I would want to talk to you myself and probably would want to see you.

Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes  - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
