5 Common reasons for the patients toot for a Tummy tuck revision are :
1. GENERAL DISSATISFACTION : Prior to undergoing the procedure, if the surgeon and patient have not reached an understanding regarding the patients expectations post op, patients will be unhappy with their results. In such a case, tummy tuck revision will be required in order to achieve the ideal result.
2. EPIGASTRIC BULGE : An epigastric bulge might mean these muscles continue to bulge underneath the skin or residual fat, causing a bulky appearance in the stomach. This could be addressed with VASER lipo.
3. LINGERING DEFORMITIES : Sometimes there are residual deformities that are left over. Such deformities include:
- • Inadequate tissue removal, prompting a revision surgery to remove it.
- • Dog ears, which occur when tissue bunches up while the incision is being closed.
- • Residual fat deposits, which cause the abdomen and pubic area to appear disproportionate.
4. BELLY BUTTON DEFORMITY : The belly button can appear deformed or unnatural following a tummy tuck. It may look elongated, enlarged, or have an obvious scar on its circumference.
5. SCAR ENLARGEMENT AND MALPOSITION : As one of the most common reasons for tummy tuck revision, the resultant scar may appear overly large. It may also be positioned too high on the stomach, preventing patients from wearing swimsuits or other tummy-bearing garments.
