11 days post op tummy tuck with muscle repair. I'm curious to know if it looks like I will develop any type of dog ear (Photo)

After a #tummytuck, one cause for #revision surgery are #DogEars at the ends of the incisions. These are small folds of excess skin that do not flatten over time. They can be excised, suctioned or both.
However, revision surgeries are usually done at about 9-12 months after surgery, once scars have settled. You are so early post-op!
