Numbness after tummy tuck surgery

How long did it take for the numbness to go away on your tummy after abdominoplasty? How about the flanks for those that had lipo too?


  1. Megan says:

    I still have sections of my tummy that I cant feel and im 4 months after tummy tuck. Mainly down the bottom bit of my scar and under my belly button.

  2. Amanda says:

    I’m 9 months post tummy tuck and I still have numbness

  3. Roni says:

    I had lipo, but those parts are NOT numb… Ouch.
    under my belly button it’s numb

  4. Gina says:

    im not numb anywhere? maybe i am weird.

  5. Sarah says:

    I’m only 23 days post tummy tuck surgery. I’m still numb from BB to incision…mostly in the middle. I had a breast augmentation too with armpit incisions and the inside of my upper arms are numb. PS said it’s normal and can take up to a year to return as those nerve endings are mending themselves.

  6. Stephanie says:

    Uh ok. I was hoping you all had most of the feeling back already!

  7. Roni says:

    LOL Gina

  8. Stephanie says:

    I had BA too but with a lift so those incisions are different than yours Sarah

  9. Susan says:

    I’m 9 weeks after tummy tuck still have numbness. But I feel great.

  10. Melissa says:

    I’m 2 years PO tummy tuck and still numb from my belly button to below my scar!

  11. Stephanie says:

    I had 3 sections too and everything took longer for me to get feeling back. After the first I never had it back right on the incision. I waited 2 years after my last section to have the tummy tuck and was mostly numb above and below the incision.

    It takes about a year for the numbness to go away fully.
