Need a Revision Surgery for Bad Scars After Tummy Tuck Complications?

I had a tummy tuck that did NOT go as planned. Surgeon overcompensated and skin was left too thin and now have terrible blotchy hypertrophic scars. (had a bad infection w/necrotic tissue) Also have dog ears on both sides and scar tissue adhesions on left hip that need to be removed. VERY nervous about a 2nd surgery but need the scarred area fixed. Need recommendations on best way to 'fix' this and a DR.referral on best place to go in Atlanta area. Not comfortable going back to original surgeon.

Sorry for what you have gone through. RealSelf has listings of surgeons in your area. You should consider cross referencing the listings from the The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (plasticsurgery dot org). A listing in the ASPS website assures you that your surgeon is not only board certified,  but also is a member in good standing of the major plastic surgery organization in the U. S.

Thank your for your question, best wishes.
