Thank you for the question. It is difficult to fully assess your situation without an in-person exam. Many factors need to be considered in order to answer your question. How long ago did you have this procedure done? As a major surgery, a tummy tuck involves a loss of blood that could explain your light-headedness shortly after the procedure. However, it'd be unusual to feel dizziness and pain months after the procedure. You should alert your surgeon to these concerns right away.
An in-person exam with a board-certified plastic surgeon would be the best way to assess your needs and obtain a reliable medical advice. Best of luck! Dr. Michael Omidi.
If you just had the surgery a few days ago, you may well be dehydrated and need more fluids. The dose of narcotics that frequently in a dehydrated patient can drop the blood pressure on standing. Try drinking a quart of water then standing and see if you still have symptoms. If so, call your doctor or go the the ER
thank you for your question. If you have extreme pain and lightheadedness I recommend calling your surgeon as soon as possible. If you cannot get a hold of your physician I recommend going to the emergency room. I think you need to be evaluated by a physician.
Thank you for your question. I would recommend calling your surgeon. If you can't get in touch with them you should have someone take you to the ER. Some pain and discomfort are normal but extreme pain and lightheadedness could be a sign of a medical problem.Best Wishes!
If you are having that problem, it can be from blood loss. You need to call your surgeon immediately.
