Mrs. X, 55, had abdominal liposuction 1 year ago.
A few weeks later Mrs. X begins to be embarrassed by wearing trousers. Wearing the belt (pants) becomes uncomfortable and then intolerable.
Mrs. X has since had pain in the lower abdomen and the root of the right thigh. On examination, there is a hyperesthetic zone (red zone). The scar at the entry point of the aspiration cannula is hyperalgesic (green zone) on palpation and rolling and partially reproduces its pain.
His treatment leads to an almost immediate improvement in his painful symptoms.
The treatment is carried out by infiltrating 1% lidocaine from the entry point of the suction cannula towards the medial abdominal part over a few centimeters.
The diagnosis is clear. Involvement of the genito-crural and ilio-inguinal territories linked to the route of the suction cannula (territory of innervation of these nerves).
General information on scar pain and its treatment.
