Although it can be disheartening, sometimes a revision tummy tuck (revision abdominoplasty) is needed to get your body where you want it to be. This can be because of unsatisfactory results, pregnancy, weight fluctuations, unexpected scarring, or worse.
How is a revision abdominoplasty done?
Revision abdominoplasty is typically done with the patient under general anesthesia, but each case will vary. With a tummy tuck revision, any extra skin is removed and the muscles of the abdomen are tightened. If you’re unhappy with the scars from your previous tummy tuck, these can also usually be addressed. The procedure typically takes 2 to 5 hours to complete.
