Tummy Tuck Revision

Tummy Tuck Revision

Tummy tucks (also known as abdominoplasty) are frequently performed body contouring procedures. This surgery is intended to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen as well as tighten the abdominal muscles which may have become lax from pregnancy or the aging process. Attention to detail such as the position of the belly button, fat on the pubis, or the creation of a narrow waistline and a scar at the appropriate level are all essential for an excellent outcome following your Orlando tummy tuck.

But what if everything doesn't go as planned? Fortunately, Dr. Spence is skilled at performing revision abdominoplasty to improve post-surgical results. If you are not happy with the outcome you have achieved from another surgeon, come in to talk with Orlando plastic surgeon Dr. Kenrick Spence to learn about corrective options.

To schedule a consultation with Dr. Spence, call 407-999-2585 or request a consultation online. Also, feel free to browse through our Before and After Photo Gallery for tummy tuck photos.

Scar Placement

Tummy tucks must be performed with your overall body contour in mind (a Three Dimensional Approach). The level of the scar is important to allow a patient to hide the scar in her under garments. The height and distance between the belly button and pubis also must be taken into consideration. The transition from the chest to abdomen must be able to complement a narrow waistline.

Performing a tummy tuck on an Orlando cosmetic surgery patient with a lot upper abdomen fat may lead to a tight lower abdomen but a full upper abdomen and a disproportionate look. Dr. Spence takes the approach of thinning out the upper abdominal skin with liposuction and contouring the waistline in a staged approach which enhances the final outcome.

Body Changes Due to Age or Pregnancy

Women who get pregnant after a tummy tuck will often need repeat muscle tightening. The scar from hip to hip sometimes can be lowered to help conceal the scar from a possible c-section. Additionally, liposuction can be performed on the lower abdomen to improve the transition of the abdomen to the pubis.

Step-Off or Shelving at the Incision

Some patients experience a step off or shelf at the incision. This can be corrected by thinning the fat at the level of the incision to create a smooth contour.

Belly Button Placement

The belly button is the center of the abdomen and the tissue around it can be contoured with liposuction to give a pleasing aesthetic result.

Attention to detail is essential to achieve the desired result for your tummy tuck revision. Dr. Spence's Three Dimensional Approach to plastic surgery allows each patient to achieve an aesthetically balanced and natural result. You can visit Hillcrest Plastic Surgery and consult with Dr. Spence to learn about these and other options available to you.

I have been a patient of Dr. Spence twice now. I didn't hesitate to contact him when I was ready to move forward with my adominoplasty. It has been a long and, at times, rough recovery but Dr. Spence and his staff have been right by my side every step of the way.
