Extending Tummy Tuck to Remove Excess Skin?
I had a Tummy Tuck 2 years ago to tighten excess skin after losing a substantial amount of weight. I am very satisfied with the results as it achieved the desired effect at the abdominal area.
However, there's still some lax skin in the area where the tummy tuck did not extend; towards the sides and back. It's not severe but I was wondering if that could be removed now as well.
Could this be done under local anesthesia? It's not a large area as the original Tummy Tuck extended at least halfway along my sides.
