Expectations not met
People that perform laser lipo feel as though skin tightening does occur but I dont perform laser lipo so I cannot comment on that. At this point, I feel like to get the result it seems you want, the best way to get it would be by getting a revision. I think you would benefit from liposuction and revision TT. When I perform my TT I almost always combine this with liposuction in order to get the best overall cosmetic result for my patients.
I hope this helps and I wish you the best of luck.

Tummy tuck postoperative
Hello and thank you for your question. While, it would be most useful to see your preoperative photos to further evaluate your question, I would encourage you to discuss with your board certified plastic surgeon what your expectations were and how they have not specifically been met. At 8 months your scars are nearing maturity. I would encourage you to continue to use a silicone based topical gel as well as avoid the sun for the best postoperative scar. Best of luck to you.

Thank you for your question and photos. I do believe that it is best to discuss your genuine concerns with your board certified surgeon. Especially if you feel you need a revision. It is difficult to assess your results via the pictures you have posted. Lasers will not do what a revision will do.
