Diagnosing nerve injury after body lift
Thank you for asking about your body lift.
- You would need to be examined by your plastic surgeon to map out the area(s) of numbness and pain and identify the nerve branches affect.
- Swelling, skin stretching and sutures from surgery all can cause temporary numbness and dysesthesias (shocks and other odd feelings.)
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
