Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.
I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.A liposuction is highly unlikely to cause a permanent damage to the nerves. So chance of recovery is very good. I hope you had nerve conduction velocity study and electromyography studies (NCV and EMG). These can assess the nerve damage and severity. They are also able to predict the prognosis reasonably well.
Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using Just Answer.
The numbness in lower abdomen and pubic area should resolve in around 6-12 weeks. This is sensory cutaneous nerve supply damage which regenerates very well. There are therapies like transcuataneous electrical stimulation and physical therapy which can help you in recovering from numbness and posture correction. The exact diagnosis for the arm can be made by an MRI, EMG and NCV.
It is privilege assisting you.

The upper limb symptoms can be due to pinched nerves in neck. An MRI and nerve conduction velocity study would confirm it. Physical therapy, neck traction and deep electrotherapy should be beneficial in that case. Neuropathy due to B 12 deficiency is another possibility.
