Got Mini TT Three Weeks Ago. Should I Go Back for Top As Well? (Photos)

I got a mini TT, lipo of hips, BA/BL 3 weeks ago (5/17). At my consult my PS said that although I had two large children naturally, I had no real muscle laxity at top. He said I could likely get away with just the lipo of my abdomen, but I'd likely have excess skin. He also said I could do full TT, but thought that it would be overkill. I chose the mini TT. Now I wish I would have done more. Can I do something to correct it or is this related to still having some swelling?

Got Mini TT Three Weeks Ago. Should I Go Back for Top As Well?

This looks like a nice outcome. I would not encourage more surgery. Some clarity about what bothers you about the result would be helpful.

All the best.

Revision Necessary after Mini Tummy Tuck Surgery?

Thank you for the pictures. Given that you are only 3 weeks out of surgery, it will be in your best interest to continue to exercise patience. Evaluate the end results of the procedure performed several months from now.

 Best wishes.

3 weeks post mini-tummy tuck and lipo

I think that at this point it is too early to say.  The result so far looks nice in your photos. Give it time to heal and then reassess in a few months.
