I have a tummy tuck, liposuction of flanks,back, legs 3 wks ago. I still have loose skin above the incesion area.It looks really ugly & I'm very upset. I've never been pregnant so the doctor did not tighten the muscle above my belly. Please take a look at my photo & let me know if another surgery can help.

At three weeks you're probably still experiencing a lot of swelling. The end result will, most likely, be quite different. Try to take a few deep breaths and reevaluate in another month or two. If it helps at all, I think you look pretty darn good! Please keep us posted on how your swelling subsides.
