Can You Redo My Endoscopic Mini Tummy Tuck?

Posted Apr 15 2010 12:00am

I had a Mini Tummy Tuck with an endoscope with a tiny cut near my pubes a few weeks ago. My upper abdominals are kinda loose. Should I have had a full tummy tuck?

Endoscopic tummy tuck surgery is kinda a paradox to me. A big part of the average tummy tuck patient’s ideal goal is tightening of the abdominal wall. This is partly accomplished through muscular tightening and partly through skin tightening via removal. You can’t remove much skin without an incision. Endoscopic surgery minimizes incisions.

Treating upper abdominal skin is part of the job of a full tummy tuck. I would probably have recommended one to you if I had seen you before your endoscopic adventure. It might still be possible to do one, but I would need to see you to see how things appear at this point. You will also want to wait until wound healing is mature to have additional surgery anyway.

Best Regards,

John Di Saia MD
