I am looking into a Redo Tummy Tuck here in the OC. Why do you not have redo Tummy Tuck images on your site?
Revision plastic surgery is an uncommon part of a practice’s cases (in the right practice of course,) but a more difficult part of plastic surgery. And tummy tuck surgery is one of the larger scale operations your plastic surgeon can perform.
Because of these issues the results in redo tummy tuck surgery will vary quite a bit. Most surgeons are a bit hesitant to place these kinds of results on their web sites for fear of scaring away the “first time” tummy tuck patients. Even a good revision case result image tends to pale in comparison to an average first time operation in which a complication did not develop.
Suffice it to say that a good deal in the land of plastic surgery relates to impressions.

Previously I discussed the relative reluctance of plastic surgeons to post images of revisions. Tummy Tuck Redo surgery can offer good results when the patients are properly chosen and the surgery is carefully focused. Not everything can be easily fixed of course.
“M” is a lady who had had a tummy tuck twenty years prior. After she visited another surgeon she had additional upper abdominal liposuction some years later. She never got the tightness she had wanted from that liposuction so later she considered revision of her tummy tuck. She did very well with her redo tummy tuck. Her pre-operative skin excess was greatly improved and the hollows created by the prior liposuction were also corrected in part. Not seen well in these images is the “puffy pubis” (commonly called a Ken Doll) she had following her original surgery. This was also nicely improved via her revision.
She is quite pleased with her smoother sexier appearance.
