Unhappy with Mommy Makeover Results and Scarring
Your #healing will continue for 2-3 months following the procedure(s) as the #scars will be evolving. If my patients have concerns that something is unusual about their healing process, it is important for them to call the office and discuss these concerns or come in to be examined. Also some severe scars can be treated with re-excision, laser, kenalog/5-FU injections, creams, silicone strips and other methods to reduce and improve healing. Additionally, scar therapy with scar maturation products (e.g. BioCorneum or Embrace) are suggested for managing scars. However, we recommend you wait to use scar improving products until a few weeks following your surgery.
Typically, its best to wait at least one year following the initial surgery to consider a #revision. Information that you read online may not apply to your personal situation. All surgical #procedures carry some degree of #risk. Always discuss your issues and concerns with the Plastic Surgeon during and following your consultation.The suitability of your procedures and any specific risks may be determined during you #consultation. Also, another element to a #satisfying result of your procedures are realistic #expectations.

It is quite unfortunate that you are not pleased with your results. I do see the asymmetry and understand your concerns. There is definite room for improvement but remember that I am just looking at a small picture, a complete exam is required to confirm this.
Your first step should be to share your concerns with your surgeon-hopefully a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. You will be surprised how, most of us, we will go to great length to make sure our patients are happy with their results.
