Tummy Tuck Revision

Tummy tuck revision is a secondary surgical procedure performed to address complications or imperfections arising from a previous abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). This can involve correcting issues like uneven scarring, dog ears (excess skin), looseness, or bulging pockets of fat.

Pros: Improves aesthetic outcome, addresses functional issues like discomfort or difficulty wearing clothes.

Cons: Additional surgery with potential risks like infection, bleeding, scarring.

Alternatives: Non-surgical options like liposuction or body contouring procedures might be suitable depending on the specific concern.

Recovery Time: Varies depending on the complexity of the revision but generally 4-6 weeks for significant improvement.

Disclaimer: Consult a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss candidacy, risks, and alternative options for tummy tuck revision.
