Too early to even think about a revision
This is amazing, you still have your drainage tubes in place and you are wondering about a revision. Give it some time and you may be pleasantly surprised. At your next visit ask your plastic surgeon if you are on target to get the result he expected.
Much too early to consider a revisional surgery.
Making a decision about the outcome of an operation even before the drains have been removed is absurd. You need to wait a minimum of six months before making judgments.
When do I get a revision
Hi cmuffin. Looks like you had flank lipo from the bruising. I don't know if your abdomen was suctioned. Nevertheless you need to wait at least 6 months before deciding on a revision, which most likely would be suctioning of the abdominal wall.
