Pain 14 months post tummy tuck and muscle repair.

Pain after a tummy tuck
Thank you for the question. Without an in-person examination, it is rather difficult to guarantee a reliable assessment of your concern and provide an individualized medical advice. While it's not uncommon to experience some discomfort shortly after a tummy tuck procedure, it is highly unusual for pain to persist 14 months after the surgery. Typically, it takes about 8-12 weeks for any wounds and scarring caused by the procedure to heal, and 4-6 months for the swelling to subside. I would strongly advise you to contact your plastic surgeon and share you concerns.
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.
Unusual Post Op Pain when Exercising
Given that it's been over a year since your surgery, what you are experiencing is definitely unusual. However, since you describe your results as "unsatisfactory", that could explain it. The best person to assess what's up is your new surgeon. Schedule an appointment to discuss with he or she in person.

It is unusual to have pain this far out from a tummy tuck, but since you say you had an "unsatisfactory" result, all bets are off. You will need an in-person evaluation. Your new surgeon is most likely to be able to help you. Good luck.
