Is it normal to feel pain in the abdomen 48 days after tummy tuck? Everything with the operation went fine, but occasionally I have a little pain in the abdominal muscles.

  • It is common to still have some occasional discomfort, for up to a few months, after a tummy tuck.  
  • Likely the discomfort you are feeling is just part of the healing process, or perhaps you "overdid" it recently, or strained a muscle. 
  • If your pain continues, or if you are still concerned, definitely make an appointment with your plastic surgeon, as he/she will be able to examine you and should be able to reassure you that everything is okay.
