Abdominoplasty Revision

Q: I’m not happy with my revision of my tummy tuck. I was concerned about the incision asymmetry almost immediately after my surgery in 2016. After much persistence, my surgeon finally agreed to fix the asymmetry problem and lipo the excess fat from that area as well. It’s 6 months after the revision now, and it’s still bothering me! I now have a flappy piece of skin that I still have to tuck into my underwear or into my bikini bottoms when I sit or bend over. The lipo area also has a large depression in it now. What do I do?

Posting front and side view of your before and after pictures would have been very helpful. Since this is the second time that you are unhappy with the surgical outcome of your tummy tuck, it will be in your best interest to consult with other experienced, board-certified plastic surgeons, who will be able to assess your situation and offer you the right solution.

As you realize from your own experience, not all results are the same, because, experience, technical skills and aesthetic eye are critical for good outcome. So, do your due diligence carefully and choose your surgeon wisely.

It is critical that you check the before and after pictures in the photo gallery, to make sure that they are numerous, consistent, and attractive, with flat stomachs, tight and youthful-looking skin, nice belly buttons, improved body posture, and low scarring.
