Tummy Tuck revision is a procedure designed to fix tummy tuck results that are not satisfactory due to tummy tuck scars that are thick and placed too high, or unsightly belly button scars, or tummy tuck dog ears, or persistent loose skin folds, stretch marks, and abdominal bulges.
Unfortunately, it is easy to find pictures of bad tummy tuck scars and dog ears on the internet. It is also possible to find ugly belly button scars after a tummy tuck that could not be covered up by tattoos or belly button rings. Seeing the pictures of tummy tucks gone wrong and reading patient tummy tuck reviews and testimonials it makes women who are not happy with their tummy tuck results be extra careful when searching for plastic surgeons who specialize in tummy tuck revision surgery. Women should not only review many tummy tuck before and after pictures, but also find tummy tuck revision photos and reviews from the tummy tuck specialist who they are consulting with.
Tummy tuck scar revision is done with the goal to lower the tummy tuck scar into a position where it can be hidden under a bikini, as well as to make the abdominoplasty scar thin and faint. To fix tummy tuck dog ears a plastic surgeon has to combine scar revision surgery and liposuction of the flanks. Belly button scar revision is performed in order to make the umbilicus smaller and inverted.
At times the entire tummy tuck surgery has to be redone or revised in order to repair stretched abdominal muscles, to remove stretch marks, and to revise the entire tummy tuck scar. This makes tummy tuck revision recovery as long as, or even longer than the original tummy tuck recovery. You can find tummy tuck recovery tips on this tummy tuck specialty website that will help to speed up your recovery time.
Tummy tuck revision surgery cost varies depending on the cost of scar revision, liposuction costs, or even the cost of full tummy tuck revision. The advent of plastic surgery financing can lessen the pain of paying for a tummy tuck revision!
In order to help get a successful tummy tuck result you should familiarize yourself with tummy tuck post operative instructions and absolutely refrain from smoking or using Nicotine products since they damage abdominal skin circulation and can result in the death of the umbilicus or reopening of your incisions, which is called wound dehiscence.
