After fat transfer/liposuction, what to do now? 1 lipo revision, post op 4 months. Do I need a mini TT now? New dr? (Photos)

I started with a nice tummy. After fat transfer/lipo to breast that ended unnecessary. I'm left with lumps and bumps. Even after a lipo revision 4 months ago. Dr said I now need mini TT? I'm looking into second options as this will be surgery 6 with this dr, 3 of them revisions for procedures. At 4 months post it's getting worse. I do the massage. I'm active. Should I wear garment? What do I do? I want to be done with these surgeries. I just need to know why, and how to fix this! Help! depressed

This is very unfortunate. My advise would be to consult with another physician for your options. Possible skin tightening treatments or a tummy tuck. Best of Luck.

Thank you for your question and the photos. The irregularity in the abdomen area seems very serious and i feel that the best to improve this would be with a Tummy Tuck. Best of luck

You need an aggressive mini tummy tuck

The only way to improve your contour which was compromised by your liposuction, is to tighten the loose skin on your abdomen.

I'm afraid that you need to get a second opinion to discuss options including a tummy tuck to tighten skin and muscles.  Your post lipo irregularities are unusually severe .
