Numbness of the abdomen after a tummy tuck

Numbness Of The Abdomen After A Tummy Tuck

 

If you have a tummy tuck, you will notice that your abdomen feels numb after the procedure. For those who are still considering a tummy tuck, then you need to understand that your abdomen will be numb and will take months to recover.

You may wonder why a tummy tuck makes your abdomen numb. The reason for this is during a tummy tuck procedure, the surgeon has to make a cut in the lower abdomen and then lift the skin from the abdomen. When the skin is lifted, it essentially causes the nerves to separate. This causes the numbness because if you look at the anatomy of the abdomen, the nerves that supply sensation to the abdomen comes from the top and also through the muscles of the abdomen, and then they go up towards the skin. So when the surgeon makes the incision, these nerves that supply sensation to the abdomen, particularly in the lower half, are damaged. This is inevitable because the nerves are too small for the surgeon to see and avoid slicing through. Thus, sensation of the abdomen will be compromised. Consequently, you have to be careful after a tummy tuck because you may not even realize if you are injured in that area.

With that said, you will eventually regain back the feeling in your surgical area because the nerves will regenerate. Patients recover sensation after surgery, but there might be small areas in your abdomen that will have complete loss of sensation permanently.

It takes months for the numbness to subside because nerves grow about an inch per month. So imagine that the incision the distance to the area that is numb is 6 inches long, then it is going to take 6 months for that particular area to regain the sensation.

Having loss of sensation in the abdomen after surgery is normal and it is something that you need to expect. You just have to be patient. However, you should also be aware that in some cases, patients never gain back sensation in certain areas.

What procedures do I need to get an hourglass shapeIf you do not have a natural hourglass shape, there are different procedures that can provide you with this unique sexy shape. Before you decide which procedure you want, there are certain things we need to determine before your surgery:

 

  1. Do you have excess skin in your belly?

  2. Is your skin very tight?

  3. Do you want to have a buttock shape at the same time?

  4. How much fat to you have?

  5. Do you want to have breast surgery combined with an hourglass surgery?

For example, if you have babies, you will most likely have excess skin, which is why a tummy tuck would be ideal for you. This procedure is also suggested for those who have a square shape because it will give you a smaller midsection. The hourglass tummy tuck involves the removal of excess skin and the tightening of the muscles combine with liposuction and fat transfer. Fat is transferred to the hips for a nice hourglass shape.

Liposuction is suggested for women who have excess fat in certain areas. The procedure is beneficial for you because your skin will look nice afterwards. Furthermore, you will have an hourglass shape as your surgeon strategically transfers fat to your hips, making you shapelier.

On the other hand, if your main concern is enhancing your buttocks, then the hourglass buttock augmentation will be a more suitable option for you. With this procedure, liposuction is performed on the back, abdomen, flanks, sides, and thighs. Once this is done, the fat is transferred to the buttock and hips. This is the difference between the hourglass buttock augmentation and the Brazilian buttock augmentation, which does not include hip.

In case you do not have enough fat for your buttocks, your alternative is the hourglass butt implant procedure. In this procedure, I essentially insert a buttock implant, do liposuction, put fat on the buttock and the hip, thus giving you a nice shape.

For some, one procedure is not enough to give them the hourglass shape because they are unhappy with the upper section of their body. Fortunately, you can combine any of the breast surgical procedures with the aforementioned procedures. In other words, you can get a breast augmentation combined with a tummy tuck, breast augmentation with the hourglass hip procedure, or breast augmentation with hourglass butt implant, etc.

When you come to my clinic, we will discuss your concerns and what you want to have. I will then suggest what hourglass procedure is more suitable for you based on your expectations, desires, amount of fat, anatomy, and skin condition, among other things.

1,000 cc de grasa en cada gluteo

Pregnancy not only loosens the skin, but it also causes excess skin in the abdomen. It can be severe enough to require not just a tummy tuck, but also the surrounding aesthetic areas of the abdomen. One of the areas that is greatly affected is the mons pubis. This is the area above the vagina. Most of the time, pregnancy causes it to sag and drop. Fortunately, this can be resolved through a tummy tuck.

 

During the tummy tuck, the excess skin in the abdomen and the mons area will be addressed. Before making an incision, I need to mark the area of the abdomen I will be slicing. While I do this, I pull the mons and the vagina upwards to ensure that the scar is in the right position. This is important because if you don’t make the incision in the right location, then the excess skin will remain, leaving sagginess in the vagina area with unsatisfactory results.

The key is to make the incision as low as possible, but at the same time being able to pull the excess skin from the mons pubis area. In other words, the skin is pulled mainly from the mons to lift it, utilizing the elasticity of the abdomen. The surgeon must determine the location of the scar by assessing the excess skin on the mons before the procedure. If we do not do this, then your mons is not going to have the aesthetic result that you are looking for.

Corregir gluteos redondos

It seems counterintuitive to discuss soft tissue relaxation after a tummy tuck. The main reason to have a tummy tuck is to have a tighter belly. But how tight your belly is going to look after surgery depends on your skin tone and elasticity prior to surgery. We have discussed this in another video. But you need to understand that in some particular patients, soft tissue relaxation means the skin of your tummy gets slightly looser after the procedure. Typically patients that have these issues are patients that have poor skin elasticity. For example, the patients that have stretch marks above the bellybutton are a higher risk of having this issue.

 

The patients that have stretch mark just below the button most of the time, they do not develop this problem. The reason is that any skin that still has stretch marks is weak and when tension is applied to the skin, it slowly and steadily relaxes, creating small areas of soft tissue relaxantion after the surgery.

Setting the tension before surgery is extremely important, because the tighter the skin is made, particularly in those patient that will have stretch marks above the belly button, the less likely these occur.

The problem is that the more skin you cut, the higher the horizontal scar your tummy tuck result will have. In other words, the more skin is removed, the higher your horizontal scar might end up.

So what happens if you develop a slightly looseness of the tummy after surgery? Well, in essence you are going to need to have a revision surgery where some of the excess skin will be removed.

Understanding skin tightness and relaxation after surgery is important for you to have realistic expectations on how your belly is going to look after surgery.

If you develop soft tissue relaxation, it does not mean that the surgeon did not cut enough skin. It means that your skin tone is poor in some cases and relaxation of the skin is just a normal process of the healing after a tummy tuck.
