Normal Result?


It would be helpful if you could provide before pictures as well as how far out from surgery you are. Although it appears as though you likely have improvement, a revision may be necessary if a sufficient amount of time since surgery has passed.

Hope this helps.

What to expect from tummy surgery?

Much of your result depends on where you started from and what was required during surgery and how good your tissues are for holding sutures if any were placed.  My patients ALL understand revisions will be needed after tummy tucks if they want 'perfect' results as there is only so much that can be done at one time.

      The result does not unreasonable, particularly if the preoperative photographs show a large subcutaneous layer and a lot of redundant skin.

Without seeing photos from before surgery a proper assessment of outcome is really not possible. Saying that, i can certainly see margin for further improvement. Please consider adding some before pictures and reposting your question. 

All the best
