Patients that are unhappy with their tummy tuck results typically seek a a tummy tuck revision.
Recurrent laxity results when a tummy tuck is done conservatively. Unfortunately, you will need a tummy tuck revision with contouring of your sides to get the results you are looking for.
In some cases, horizontal skin redundancy in addition to vertical skin redundancy can cause an abdominal crease. A combination of reverse tummy tuck and possible fat transfer is needed to correct the above crease deformity. It is recommended you wait at least one month prior to making any decisions.
If you have horizontal redundancy that has resulted in a vertical crease you should seek a revision. My favorite technique to fix this is a combination of creating horizontal tightness with a reverse tummy tuck and lower body extension of the tummy tuck incision line. These two maneuvers will avoid a vertical incision which was the traditional technique to fix this problem.
