Revision tummy tuck may be necessary when initial surgery doesn't deliver the results the patient expects.  The type of revision surgery depends on what has to be done during surgery to address the problem.Performing liposuction of the flanks and back at the same time of a tummy tuck revision can be done. However, these are additional procedures that increases the overall cost of the surgery.In my practice, I ask potential tummy tuck revision candidates to talk to some of my former tummy tuck revision patients to make sure I could be the surgeon that fits their needs.

The first thing you should do is check the ASPS website for a list of doctors in your area.  Then look at online reviews.  Check the surgeon's website.  Look at their results.  Ask around to see if you have any personal references, these can be very helpful.  Once you have screened the doctor, meet with them. If they are professional and sincere, educated and experienced, if they listen to your concerns and develop a plan which fits with your goals, you have found a good match.
