Fussy old broad with big expectations survived TWO tummy tucks!

I'm an "older" tummy tuck candidate. I'm 5'10" and weigh 150 pounds and 62 years old. I'm relatively slim but have had a bit of a blubber belly for almost as long as I can remember. I have not had children so I can't even blame my protruding abdomen on childbirth. I've had my weight down to... READ MORE

"Skin only" tummy tuck with short vertical scar ---- Revision to correct upper abdominal loose skin

I had a mini TT just over five months ago with very good results. I feel that my results could have been even better if I had had "the works"--a FULL TT!! Almost immediately post op I suspected that I didn't have a FULL TT (the STANDARD TT that I had paid for) because my BB was left untouched... READ MORE

Questions from Blubberbelly No More

How do surgeons tighten the fascia ABOVE the umbilicus when the umbilical stalk is left attached during an abdominoplasty?

Due to poor skin elasticity in my upper abdomen my umbilical stalk was left attached as my surgeon did not think he could get it to drift downward sufficiently to have an... READ MORE

Why do I have upper abdominal skin rolls in the afternoon but not in the morning? (photo)

Twelve weeks ago I had a "standard tummy tuck" with my umbilical stalk left intact ( but pulled down about an inch). I had liposuction to my upper abdomen and muscle plication... READ MORE

Should I expect much improvement IF I have a tummy tuck revision? (photo)

I had a "standard abdominoplasty" almost five months ago resulting in a very tight abdomen BELOW my belly button but lots of redundant skin ABOVE it. My umbilical stalk was... READ MORE

Can I expect a much tighter upper abdomen if I have a tummy tuck revision considering that my skin has poor elasticity?

I had a mini abdominoplasty with lipo of my upper abs, flanks, and hips five months ago. I now have lots of loose skin between my chest and belly button when bending over and... READ MORE

Operating room time needed to do abdominoplasties?

How much longer does it take a surgeon to perform a full abdominoplasty (with muscle plication) than a mini abdominoplasty when there is not more than a pound of skin to... READ MORE

Will my waist circumference be reduced to make a notable difference? (photos)

I had a mini abdominoplasty almost six months ago with undesirable results. (Too much redundant skin remaining above my umbilicus). I am scheduled for a full abdominoplasty but... READ MORE

13 days post op of Abdominoplasty, I had about 110cc of brownish blood aspiration of hematoma. What is the risk of infection?

I had about 110cc's of brownish blood aspirated today due to a prominent bulge to my abdomen after having abdominoplasty surgery 13 days ago. Would this be considered a LARGE... READ MORE

That little indent just below your BB might "fill out". I had an indent like that too which seems to have filled out recently. Your incision looks beautiful! The dog ears are apparently easy to fix so I wouldn't worry about it. You... READ COMMENT

No, it doesn't look like you've got a vertical incision. IF you do it's probably no more than half and inch long and covered with a steristrip. That means you had enough excess skin to get your old BB hole pulled all the way down to... READ COMMENT

You're obviously very flat. That belly button can be revised if you're still not happy with it. There seem to be a lot of surgeons out there who use that line "you're coming along nicely" blah, blah, blah... I've found that after... READ COMMENT

Thank you--Yes, the results of my revision surgery are good and much better than the first surgery. I can still be nit picky but considering my age this is probably as good as it gets!! I've seen much worse here on RS! I'm very... READ COMMENT

I too have a vertical scar from my revision surgery but it's only about an inch long. I'm guessing that if Peterson had done my surgery he might have pulled me so tight making a vertical scar unnecessary. Still, both my vertical and... READ COMMENT
