Tummy Tuck Revision Beverly Hills
Patients present for abdominoplasty revision or tummy tuck redo’s several times throughout the year. This is most consistent with patients who have undergone gastric bypass surgery and had massive weight loss and concurrently with the original gastric bypass have had paniculectomies prior to losing their significant amount of weight. As a result, patients often lose anywhere between 50 and 120 pounds and now present with further skin laxity as well as large dog ears on the hips.
The treatment for this is surgical correction by secondary full abdominoplasty, tightening of the muscles as necessary, resection of the hip dog ears and often liposculpturing of the flanks and upper hip region. Tummy tuck revisions are rewarding, especially in patients who have had gastric bypass or bariatric surgical procedures who require secondary removal of redundant amounts of skin laxity after continued weight loss.
