Can the uneven and mushroom effects be corrected with lipo only ? Desperately needed advice! (Photo)

The cut is very uneven along with the bellybutton from the original tummy tuck/ lipo on April 4, 2016. I was thrown back into emergency surgery due to excessive water retention after the tubes were removed the first time April 11, 2016. April 19, 2016 was when I went back in for the surgery having the tubes replaced in a different location in hopes of a better outcome. I have to wear spandex now to help with the pressure.

I suggest a revision tummy tuck with liposuction.  Weight loss will be essential before hand to get the best outcomes. I suggest seeing a body contouring specialist who doesn't just reduce fat but uses it to reshape and contour.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Tummy tuck - can liposuction improve this?

Thank you for asking about your tummy tuck and liposuction.

  • I am sorry you've had such a hard time.
  • Yes, liposuction could make a big improvement in your result.
  • You should not have anything done for at least six months after your second operation, possibly longer.

Hard to say definitively but yes! you need aggressive lipo, may have to wait a few months to let your body recover more form original surgery, but yes! you can better shape your body...good luck!
