Tummy Tuck

Revision Tummy Tuck Surgery is a complex cosmetic procedure that corrects errors from previous tummy tuck surgery or previous liposuction surgery resulting in irregularities, excess skin, poor scarring and other undesirable results.

What is Revision Tummy Tuck?

A revision tummy tuck is a complex surgical procedure used to resolve any mistakes or errors made during an initial tummy tuck. Patients also opt for this procedure to correct irregularities after a liposuction procedure.

The most common problems we see after a previous tummy tuck or mini-tummy tuck surgery are irregular abdominal wall tightening, umbilical float where the belly button is pulled too low, scar too high, too wide, or irregular, dog ears, unsightly belly button, mons pubis hanging, or excess skin above the belly button.

The most common problems we see after liposuction are overaggressive techniques resulting in irregularities, and excess skin. These problems are complex and revision tummy tuck surgery is an extremely challenging surgery that requires detailed pre-operative planning, meticulous technical skill, and experience

So many times, we wish we had a time machine so we could have been the ones to perform our patient’s initial surgery and give them the results they hoped for and deserved. 

Unfortunately, with revision surgery, sometimes the damage is so great, not all errors can be repaired. Although these have been some of the most difficult cases we have performed, they are also the most rewarding, and we feel grateful that we have been able to help so many patients look and feel better.

Frequently Asked Questions

What You Should Know Before Your Revision Tummy Tuck

Prior to your revision tummy tuck, you will need to schedule a consultation appointment. During this consultation, we will review the operative note from your previous tummy tuck and assess any abnormalities, errors, or irregularities. We will discuss your desired outcome and whether the outcome of your previous surgery can be corrected.

We will do a detailed consultation from our office, take a complete medical history and conduct a careful examination and develop a customized plan based on your anatomy as well as your aesthetic goals. We consider age, overall health, emotional well-being, as well as expectations for surgery when evaluating a candidate for this procedure.

What Happens During Revision Tummy Tuck?

Before your procedure begins, we will once again discuss your desired outcome in the pre-operative area. We may mark the skin on your abdomen to show you where your incisions will be. After this, we will begin the procedure.
