Results after TT
thanks for your questions and for posting your photos. I recommend letting everything heal and let the swelling settle down before performing any revisions. For example, it takes 3-6 months for the swelling to go down after a TT. It takes a whole year for the incision the heal and remodel. You can try to get more liposuction after about 6-12 months and a scar revision after a year. This is the safest way to go.

Thank you for your question and photos. A personal exam and consultation is always best.
That said although six weeks may seem like a long time to you, it is still very early in your recovery to determine the success of your surgery. I suggest you speak to your plastic surgeon about your concerns. It may take as long as 6 months to get a good idea about your results.
Be sure to consult a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, experienced in your procedure, and who has an excellent reputation in your community.

The degree of improvement is good but your happiness is paramount. Best to discuss with your surgeon..

At this point, I would let everything heal for 4-6 months to allow the swelling to resolve. Then, return to your plastic surgeon to see if any revisions need to be done.
