Second procedures are best well researched

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.
