Botched Tummy Tuck?

It sounds like you and your PS need to have an open discussion about your concerns and dissatisfaction.  Without a picture it is hard to tell you what your options may be.  the best determinant of your options would be a complete exam.

Second procedures are best well researched

Sound like you need to see two or three plastic surgeons for opinions.   Without photos its is hard for us to say much.   Often a little liposuction at a year out has great impact on a fine result.   Get some opinions  from other docs  who get a chance to evaluate you.  Plastic surgeons often dont charge for second opinions so costs should be moderate.  My Best,  Dr C

Second Opinion

It is always best to obtain a second opinion from an outside surgeon when considering plastic surgical revisions.

A tummy tuck is comprised of 2 procedures:

1. removal  of skin and fat

2. tightening of the abdominal muscles

In some cases, the muscle repair can be lost and a revision is required. A CT scan is a good study to determine the quality of this repair. For a revision, the same incision can be used, and the muscles are retightened on the inside.
