Revising Plastic Surgery of the Stomach, Abdomen, & Belly Button.

There are many types of abdominal wall sculpture for many different problems. In picking a Tummy Tuck surgeon, you are choosing an artist of tissue sculpting. Each surgeon has their own level of skills and each patient heals in their own fashion. What you find here on Dr. Bermant's website are typical results from his sculpture. Our goal is for each patient satisfaction and being able to tell us that their results were just like they found on our site or better.

We see many patients from around the world dissatisfied and frustrated after surgery elsewhere. Prevention is the best way to not need revision surgery in the first place. Although Dr. Bermant does many revision operations, it is rare that he needs to revise his own patient's operations. That is why picking your surgeon for your original abdominal sculpture can be so important. When a patient has tummy tuck surgery elsewhere, but does not like his / her results, Revision Tummy Tuck surgery can often help. Options depend on the original problem, what was done, after surgery care, complications, how you healed, and other factors. We are glad to help you explore such concerns during an in office consultation or a Preliminary Remote Discussion.

Abdominoplasty Revision

Tummy Tuck Abdominoplasty consists of several components. One or more of these elements can contribute to a failed result. Sculpture begins with an analysis of the problem, timing of the different elements, selecting the best tools for the surgical sculpture, the actual surgical sculpture, and then the healing.

Plastic Surgery is not an alternative to losing weight.

Plastic Surgery not alternative to losing weight.Fat is stored inside the abdominal contents primarily in a structure called the omentum. Tummy Tuck surgery attempts to tighten the abdominal wall against this fat will quickly stretch back out from the internal pressure. Muscle Fascia Tightening surgery will not help when there are such internal forces at work. Repeat surgery is best deferred until the underlying problem is addressed.


weight loss better before Plastic SurgeryWeight loss before surgery is better than after. Losing weight is a coarse tool, you cannot pick where the weight comes from. Plastic Surgery is best used for refinement after weight loss. Plastic Surgery is not a good jump starting tool. What makes you think that your skin will shrink with further weight loss after Tummy Tuck surgery? If that were the case, skip the surgery, lose the weight and watch the skin tighten! Unfortunately it does not work that way making early surgery a gamble. Bridges can be burned with surgery too early. Limited loose skin from weight loss after surgery may not have secondary surgical options.


Pregnancy will stretch stomach skin adbdominal wall.Pregnancy can stretch the abdominal wall structures. How well the tissues rebound after childbirth vary depending on many factors. Tighten the stomach, then stretch tissues with pregnancy, and loose tissues can recur. After Pregnancy redo surgery sometimes is an option depending on how much loose skin has occured.

Tissues Need to Heal and Soften Before Considering Further Surgery.
Dr. Bermant normally prefer the tissues to soften before any major revision in plastic surgery. This can take 6 months or longer depending on what was done. In cases where patients are unhappy, he recommends an evaluation early in order to evaluate possible options. We prefer to evaluate the problem, a copy of the operative report, doctor's office records and before surgery photographs at the time of your evaluation.
