It might: Any time there is an incision there is the possibility of numbness or changes in skin sensation. Sometimes it is temporary due to sensory nerve damage, but a complete loss at the incision site is common in all types of plastic surgery. https://www.plasticsurgery.org/cosmetic-procedures/body-lift/safety

For : For all surgery there is some loss of sensation along the incision. In general, the area of loss is limited, and the loss of sensation improves with time. For the tummy tuck, same as the front part of a body lift, the sensation is usually decreased below the belly-button down to the incision. This is because the skin is moved from above the belly button, and the nerves are stretched or cut in order to provide the flattest possible result. The area of numbness decreases in size over time, and improves noticeably during the months after surgery. Often, only a small area of numbness remains just over the middle of the scar. Since we are not often testing if objects are hot, cold or sharp with our belly, it is not some thing that most patients complain about. ...Read more

Can liposuction get rid of the pendulous skin under my arms? I want to get rid of the wobbly fat and skin under my arms. Can liposuction help with this? How often do patients need to have the skin removed as well as the fat?

No.: No, generally arm lifting surgery is necessary to remove “pendulous skin" under the arms. Liposuction surgery alone will likely leave you with loose/irregular/unattractive skin. Best to seek consultation with board-certified plastic surgeons who can demonstrate significant experience helping patients in this area. Best wishes. ...Read more

How can I get rid of the rest of my breasts without surgery? I'm a 30B and i want them completely gone im 5'4 and 102lbs. Would a vegetarian diet work

How can I get rid of the rest of my breasts without surgery? I'm a 30B and i want them completely gone im 5'4 and 102lbs. Would a vegetarian diet work

Why?: Wanting you breasts to be "completely gone" is very unusual, in fact have not encountered this before, though I expect it might not be uncommon in women who feel like a man and are interested in changing sex. A vegetarian diet won't work; I don't know of anything other than surgery that could work. But I urge you to consult a psychiatrist or psychologist to explore why you want your breasts gone. ...Read more
