Dear Doctor Pataki,
I am sending you photos of my abdomen. I had two liposuctions earlier this year, and as you can see the effect is very bad. Now the tummy is not straight and has many lumps under the skin. I wants to make my tummy soft again and fix the bellybutton placement, as it is not straight.
What would you recommend ? Tummy tuck or liposuction?
Could you please provide me with a consultation?
Thank you in advance.
Thank you for your Email.
Dr. Pataki and our staff are determined to help you. Dr. Pataki has thoroughly investigated the photos, which were good enough to draw conclusions and make recommendations, suggest therapy options.
You have had a number of plastic surgery operations in the past, according to the pictures you have sent. (abdominoplasty and liposuction etc.)
The best methods and tools to treat your problems:
1. Revisional Liposuction of the abdomen and waist (making the surfaces even)
2. Liposhifting (moving fat from good to bad areas)
3. Additional microstructural autologous fat filling for enhanced results, and rejuvenation and revitalization of the abdominal tissues, and for better scars
(this would be in one sitting and it would have an effect on the belly button)
in an other sitting 4-6 months later:
4. Re-abdominoplasty, with belly button correction and scar excision of former scars should be performed
Thank you very much for your interest and we hope that all your questions can be answered at a personal conversation.
