Belly Button after Tummy Tuck
Jun 19, 2018
Hi there,In my experience marbles, beads and other stretching devices are most useful when the opening for the umbilicus (belly button) is small and/or shrinking. And, in truth they are only of limited benefit.I am not familiar with their use in a shallow/flat umbilicus where the opening is not constricted.So – waiting is likely to be an important part of your recovery.However, while you are waiting you can discuss with your surgeon the potential role of silicone gel products, scar cr…
Stomach dented after seroma – will it ever look normal? 2 months post-op.
Seroma and indentation after Abdominoplasty
Jun 19, 2018
Good afternoon,Thanks for the pictures and thorough history. Only time will tell what the final result will be. What’s important in your case is that the seroma was recognized and treated appropriately in its early stages. That tends to keep other complications to a minimum.Currently it is too early to know how much of the contour irregularities are from typical swelling and minor reoperation  and how much is more permanent.Some time around 6 months post op, you and your surgeon should hav…
What is the downtime for Fraxel?
Down Time for Fraxel
May 30, 2018
Good afternoon,Downtime from redness with Fraxel treatments will depend on a few things – including the sub type of Fraxel laser used – (Dual, Re:pair, Re;store) and the actual energies applied. This will also balance with your skin type and the goals of your treatment.Specific to redness and the treatment of fine lines – usually redness is significantly reduced by 5 days (easily masked with makeup) and gone within 7 days.Some patients will continue to experience areas of dryness or mild …
L&D nurse, when can I go back to work after BA?
Returning to work after BBA
May 16, 2018
Hi there Lacococo,Of course you and your surgeon will make the final decision about a return to work plan that is safe and effective for your specific circumstances. However, in principle 7 or 8 days off will be sufficient, as long as you are able to return to some form of modification and accommodation to your duties for approximately 6 weeks in total.For day to day Maternal New Born nursing you will be fine – my only concern is with the more strenuous parts of your job helping the new …
I have a seroma, surgeon’s nurse said I can exercise now with/without compression. Is this correct?
Seroma and Excercise
Oct 30, 2017
Hi Tasha,Though there will be differences of protocol among different surgeons, most will restrict physical activity and encourage ongoing use of a garment until a seroma has resolved.I’m sure your nurse has your best interests at heart but I would reach out to your surgeon for an assessment and his/her opinion.Best of luck with your recovery.Dr Nodwell
