Your results do show improvement

and that is all we can promise.  Your results are not perfect and revisions are used to help improve on your results.  Know your doctors revision policy as you will need to implement it if you wish to have better results.

Skin laxity after an abdominoplasty

You do have some residual laxity of your lower abdominal skin.  This may improve with some time but in general, considering the degree of excess skin laxity, your result is satisfactory.

Appears as a very acceptable result. But you are the one that needs to be satisfied. Best to allow 6 months of healing.

You are still swollen so you need to wait 4 months for complete resolution of swelling. I think you will have extra skin and fat along with some abdominal wall laxity, all of which will require another surgery.

Thank you for your pictures.  It appears that you have had a poorly performed tummy tuck.  You most likely need a revision of your tummy tuck.
