Tummy Tuck Revision
If the muscles below are still causing the bulge, need more plication. If it is a thick flap, need more lipo or fat resection in that area. The dog ears are easy to fix. Be sure to discuss specifics of your desires for your BB also prior to revision. good luck
Noninvasive Fat Removal
I think that it depends on what is causing the bulge. I haven't heard of a "skin flap being tucked under" in a standard abdominoplasty operation. If a persistent diastasis recti is causing the bulge, then repeat/revision abdominoplasty surgery is your best option. However, if you do not have a diastasis, and the bulge is from subcutaneous fat, I would investigate a non-surgical fat removal/destruction device such as Ultrashape or Sculptsure. You would be an excellent candidate for these technologies, and they would save you a second operation. Good luck!
