I have a bulge (spare tire) above my belly button after a full tummy tuck 5 months ago. Will Lipo help?

- Good medical photos might help show the nature of your post surgical problem.
- There is no substitute for a visit back to your plastic surgeon to re-evaluate your abdominal wall.
- Liposuction of the upper abdomen performed at the time of your tummy tuck is quite limited; too much lipo can disturb the blood vessels going to your remaining tummy skin and result in tissue loss. Your surgeon's Re-examination will help determine the best treatment options.
