Some women desire a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) after pregnancy to help repair weakened abdominal muscles, remove fat, tighten loose skin or remove stretch marks. Both men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight may also pursue tummy tuck to address similar issues.
A tummy tuck should result in a beautiful, smooth midsection; however, this does not always occur. Whether due to surgical technique, patient anatomy and genetics, or post-operative care and behavior, sub-optimal results may require a tummy tuck revision.
Surgical revision may address concerns such as dimpled skin, poor waist contouring, extra skin or fat around the incision line, irregularly shaped belly button, high/enlarged/uneven scars. A revision can also correct bulging due to inadequate repair of the muscle wall.
