Tummy tuck revision - weight loss? (photos)
Doctor Answers 10
Based on your photos, I am not sure if you have enough laxity for a full tummy tuck. There is a chance that the hole in which the belly button used to sit, and is usually excised with the rest of extra skin ends up giving you a a short vertical scar. The way around it would be by bringing your horizontal scar higher which I don't think you would want. I think liposuction or cool sculpting might give you just what you want.
Of course, nothing can replace a physical exam by a plastic surgeon.
You look like a great candidate for a full tummy tuck with muscle tightening for a flatter abdomen,I recommend you consult carefully with a board certified PS.
Full tummy tuck with muscle plication
Based on these photographs you appear to be an excellent candidate for a full tummy tuck with muscle reconstruction. This will flatten the muscles, reconstruct your core muscular corset, revise the belly button, eliminate the stretch marks from the belly button to the pubic hairline, and remove the loose skin and fat of the anterior abdomen.

Revision tummy tuck.
I believe you would benefit greatly from a revision of your tummy tuck. Since you're not a weight patient, I don't believe you will benefit from a 360 tummy tuck or body lift. I would have to see you in person to really tell. Best wishes, Dr. ALDO
Tummy Tuck and Liposuction
Hello, thanks for your pictures and your inquiry, I would suggest to have a tummy tuck and lipo in your torso and back, that way you would achieve a better result. You are doing a good job working out! Congratulations.
Please make sure that you and your surgeon are on the same page. Don't forget to discuss all your concerns, options and expectations thoroughly. Have a safe and pleasant PS Journey!

Unfortunately, your surgeon was unlikely an ABPS certified/ASAPS member surgeon that performs complex body contouring procedures regularly. You would be a great candidate for a comprehensive abdominoplasty that includes 360 degrees of liposuction around your torso. You do not need a belt lipectomy, aka lower body lift or 360 tummy tuck. Please visit the previously described surgeons that perform the most modern surgery without the need for drains and one week recovery. Best of luck!
Tummy tuck revision - weight loss?
Thank you for your question and photographs. I think it is best to advise you to have a face-to-face meeting with an ABPS board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss what options are available and best for you to consider. Your middle picture seems to show a quite satisfactory result but perhaps some touchup liposuction would benefit you by flattening your stomach further and helping in the hip roll area. This would need to be confirmed on a face-to-face physical examination. Being at a healthy and maintainable weight before any surgical procedure is always well advised. Best wishes,

Revision tummy tuck in a male
Fortunately there are a number of options for you to tighten your skin further. Especially after large weight loss, the upper abdominal skin may also show looseness. It should be a straightforward matter to convert your tummy tuck to a tummy tuck that would tighten the upper abdomen as well.
Tummy tuck revision
Thanks for your question. I would also recommend seeing a plastic surgeon to discuss your concerns and to better guide you. You do not need a 360 tummy tuck (belt lipectomy). If your main concern is the excess skin then this will likely not improve with liposuction alone. However, after a mini tummy tuck some patients don't have enough excess skin to be able to perform a full tummy tuck later. Best to visit with a plastic surgeon in your area.
