Tummy Tuck Left Me with "Dog Ears" on Sides - Am I Going to Need a Revision?

Recovery has been alot more painful and difficult...

Recovery has been alot more painful and difficult that I expected, but I am only four weeks out and it does get a smidgen better every day.

I think I might need revision on the sides, where the incision end on each side. There is a slight overhang of fleshy skin. I was advised by my doctor to use expression compression so I am wearing my compression garment plus another compression garment that looks like a wide belt or back brace. It is helping with the discomfort but not the excess skin.

My doctor is well experienced, so I think this has made him desensitized to the emotions and fear people go through, he has lost his bedside manner Im afraid. That is why I am asking questions here rather than calling the office.
