How long will it take to get feeling back in my tummy after a full tummy tuck?

Sensation takes months to return and some areas stay numb
It can take months for sensation to return. In some cases it never returns fully. You should speak to your surgeon regarding your concerns. Everyone is very different. You should be able to stand up straight soon after surgery, but it may be very uncomfortable. Listen to your body, if it hurts, it may take a little longer. Best wishes!
