Fold/flap of skin after tummy tuck
Thank you for your question. You have what we call a "dog ear" which basically is the end of the incision . Your PS can only extend the incision to your hips, he or she has to end it at some point. It's your back fat or skin that causes the skin to stick out at the end of the incision. He can repair them in the office under local anesthesia by extending the scar further back .
You have what appears to be a"dog ear" which is excess skin at the ends of the transverse closure. Usually this can be removed in the office setting under local anesthesia.

Dog ears after tummy tuck
Hi - if the fold is still there 1.5 years after surgery then it is unlikely to resolve by itself. This should be straight forward to sort out with a small procedure under local anaesthetic.
This is what is typically known as dog ears. A quick scar revision under local anesthesia will take care of this. Please see your plastic surgeon and express your concerns.
