Tummy Tuck Revision Overview

By RealSelf
  • Tummy tuck revisions, also called secondary tummy tucks, are sought for a number of reasons: post-operative weight gain or weight loss, a new pregnancy, or dissatisfaction with the results from the first operation.
  • Plastic surgeons will point out that there are many variations of tummy tucks, and a different procedure may be recommended this time around. Depending on what your options are, the operative report from the first tummy tuck might be important, especially concerning how the umbilicus (belly button) is handled.
