What is a Tummy Tuck Revision?
“Tummy tuck” is the commonly used name for a procedure designed to improve the appearance of the abdomen. Sometimes a person might seek a tummy tuck revision, which is a procedure following complications or unwanted side effects from a previous tummy tuck. Depending on the extent of the correction required to achieve the desired look, the surgeon can use a variety of techniques to tighten the abdominal muscles and smooth skin. The goal is to create a tighter, flatter stomach with aesthetic and desirable proportions and contour.
Who Needs a Tummy Tuck Revision and Redo?
There are a number of common reasons for needing a tummy tuck revision including:
- High scar
- Uneven scar
- Muscle tightening not done
- No monsplasy
- Contour irregularities after abdominal lipo when patient had too much skin laxity and would have needed a TT in the first place
A tummy tuck revision can address and correct any of these issues.
When is the Best Time for a Tummy Tuck Revision or Redo?
A tummy tuck revision or redo can address a number of issues, but there are certain times when it would be the best option. Ideally, a patient would want to have a tummy tuck revision 9-12 months after the first tummy tuck. It can take a full 6 months for a tummy tuck to heal, so you wouldn’t want to undergo a new abdominal procedure before this time has passed.
