A tummy tuck revision is the general term for a secondary abdominoplasty, which can take many forms, ranging from a complete repeat procedure (as in, retightening abdominal muscles and trimming away extra skin) to more minor tweaks (scar revisions and such) that can be done in the office, under local anesthesia.

Prepare your home for your recovery before surgery:

. If you have children, arrange for them to be cared for.

. If you will not have someone to prepare every meal, have easy-to-reheat meals on hand or cook your own and freeze them for heating up later. Choose healthful meals and snacks.

. Place all of your food and toiletries within easy reach, preferably at hip level, so that you do not have to reach, bend over or climb up to get them.

. Purchase several bags of frozen peas, usually three “sets” of what you will require for icing your surgical area.

. Have an area set up on your nightstand for your medications, with a medication organizer (with day and time dose compartments) and a written backup schedule/check list.

. Place several bottles of water and plain, low-sodium crackers on your nightstand.

. Place Wet-naps, Kleenex and a roll of paper towels within reach.

. Place a digital thermometer near the bed so that you will be reminded to take your temperature.

. Make sure your remote controls have fresh batteries or are fully charged.

. Have plenty of reading material and movies ready in advance so that you will have something to do when you are not sleeping.

. Have your cellphone, charger cord and a power supply nearby as well. You can use your cellphone in an emergency and also to call or text your caretaker.

. Set up your bed with plenty of pillows, including body pillows. If you have a recliner, you may wish to sleep there instead.

Whether your surgery is performed on an inpatient or outpatient basis and whether you stay overnight at a recovery center is based on many variables, including your medical issues, the amount of surgery you will undergo, the length of time your surgery takes, other procedures that may be performed at the same time, and the availability of your caregiver at home.

Your board-certified plastic surgeon is your best guide. If you go home the same day, be sure to arrange for someone to drive you home after surgery and to stay with you for at least the first night following surgery.

Who is a candidate for Tummy Tuck Revision (abdominoplasty revision)?

Patients are usually candidates for Tummy Tuck revision (abdominoplasty revision) if they have:

. Belly button (umbilicus) distortion: There are many ways in which the umbilicus can be distorted with a Tummy Tuck. Some of the changes that can occur after surgery are the following:

   . Belly button shrinkage (stenosis). This occurs when the umbilicus gets very small after surgery.

   . Enlarged belly button: When the size of the belly button is too large causing a cosmetically unpleasant enlarged appearance.

   . Elongated belly button look. This results when the vertical pull of the skin causes the shape of the belly button to change from a round to an elliptical and elongated shape.

. Conspicuous scar around the belly button.

   . Scar revision: when the appearance of the Tummy Tuck scar is unpleasant. Some of the common causes of Tummy Tuck Revision (abdominoplasty revision) regarding scar revision are:

   . Scar thickening and malposition

   . Scar lies high in the abdomen (thus, preventing you of being able to wear clothes as low as you might want.

   . Asymmetric scar (one side can be higher than the other side, which can also compromise the look and the clothes that you might want to wear.)

. Residual deformities. Some of the most common residual deformities after a Tummy Tuck are the following:

   . Dog-ears: Dog-ears can be common if the amount of tissue removal is inadequate at the time of closing the scar on the sides. A dog-ear is the result of a significant lack of soft tissue excision, which allows the tissue to bunch on the sides.

. Residual fat deposits: The most common areas that require revision after surgery is the mons pubis and the flanks. This is usually evident in patients that undergo traditional Tummy Tuck (classic abdominoplasty) when a Brazilian Tummy Tuck (lipo-abdominoplasty) was indicated. If liposuction is not performed in these areas, you will have a flat abdomen but an unsightly bulginess that will be aesthetically unpleasant. In addition, the flanks require extensive liposuction to diminish the waistline and avoid excessive fat bulginess.

. Inadequate tissue removal

. Epigastric bulging: Insufficient suturing of the abdominal wall muscles above the belly button (diastasis of the recti repair) can give you bulginess in this area that affects your abdomen negatively.

. Unsatisfactory overall Tummy Tuck appearance

During Tummy Tuck Revision

During the procedure

What happens during a tummy tuck revision?

Like your first tummy tuck, your revision surgery will likely be performed under general anesthesia. Revision procedures may take as long as the original operation, which may last between two and four hours.

The revision will depend on the problem that needs to be corrected. For instance, residual fat can often be removed via liposuction, and that procedure may also be combined with a radiofrequency treatment, such as BodyTite, to produce a contraction in tissues to tighten excess skin. If the belly button has healed in an unnatural-looking way (sometimes it becomes very small or elongated, so it looks like a slot), your surgeon may be able to address it with an umbilicoplasty, a fairly simple procedure with a short recovery time.

Sometimes, the right fix is a mini tummy tuck, which is effective for people who have excess skin and fat only below the belly button. However, if you have excess skin and/or fat and also need more muscle tightening, a full-fledged secondary tummy tuck may be in order. It’s important to work together with your surgeon in order to determine the right treatment plan for the results you want.

After Tummy Tuck Revision

Recovery Timeline

. Immediately after

The recovery after tummy tuck revision will be similar to that of the original tummy tuck procedure. Our doctor will bandage the abdomen and place a compression garment over the treated area to minimize side effects. It is essential for patients to get plenty of rest during the initial stages of recovery. Discomfort can be alleviated with pain medication.

. 1 Week

Most tummy tuck revision patients feel well enough to continue their daily activities and return to work within 7 days. Heavy lifting and strenuous activities, however, should still be avoided.

. 2 Weeks

Bruising and swelling should subside considerably by this time. Light activities and postoperative massages can be performed.

. 4 to 6 Weeks

Patients can resume all of their normal activities, including exercise. Some minor swelling may persist.

. 6 Months

All of the swelling should be resolved by this point, revealing the final results.

What is the post-operative diet for a Tummy Tuck revision procedure?

. No specific diet is necessary. A healthy, well-balanced diet with adequate protein and exercise will help you maintain the results you get from the tummy tuck revision.

. Drink plenty of fluids and maintain good nutrition with adequate protein.

. Following recovery it is a good idea to make sure your caloric intake is balanced with your activity level.
