I have been reading reviews since I got my first tummy tuck in Aug. 2011. I was so happy with the results the first couple of month but then realized that I needed a revision. After 6 months, I returned to having a pooch and my scar was dark and thick. The picture I provided is while I am laying down so you can't see my pooch. I went to a few doctors to get different opinions because my surgeon kept telling me it was a seroma and that my scar will get better with time. I didn't want to believe him.
I chose another doctor to do my revision. He informed me that it was not a seroma. It was extra skin. The first doctor didn't pull me tight enough. The scar was dark and thick because my body didn't want to absorb the sutures basically I had a bad reaction to the sutures. I went in for a revision 8 months after my first tt April 2012. I am 3 month post op and I am happy with my results. I will have to do steriod injections in my bb scar or revise my bb scar as it opened up after a week after surgery but I dont care it was worth doing the revision. My stomach is flat.
