Some plastic surgery procedures can produce less-than-optimal results, leading unsatisfied patients to have body contouring revision surgery. Even when the initial results meet expectations, changes that occur over time or complications may prompt people from Tuscaloosa, Huntsville, Montgomery, and beyond to seek revision surgery at the Birmingham, AL, practice of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael S. Beckenstein.
Who Gets Body Contouring Revision Surgery?
There are multiple reasons for a person to seek revision surgery after a body contouring procedure. Dr. Beckenstein specializes in revision surgery and performs many of these procedures every year. Revision procedures are more complex and require expertise that not all plastic surgeons possess.
Dr. Beckenstein performs secondary procedures on every part of the body including the revision of breast augmentation, tummy tuck surgery, and other body contouring procedures. Many physicians and even several of his colleagues refer their patients to Dr. Beckenstein for revision surgery.
Reasons that patients seek revision body procedures include:
Excess abdominal skin
Inappropriate scar location
Inappropriate umbilical (belly button) location
Abdominal wall bulges
Scar tissue and other issues related to the initial surgery are among the reasons revision surgery is much more complicated. The specific nature of your procedure will depend on whether you are getting revision surgery for a liposuction procedure, a previous tummy tuck surgery, or another type of procedure.
A Reputation Built on Results
I was very comfortable with my consult. The staff is very professional and just made my whole experience...
Revision surgery techniques vary depending on the reasons for the revision. When Dr. Beckenstein meets with potential revision surgery patients, he listens to them describe why they’re not happy and what their expectations are for the revision procedure. He honestly assesses each case and will let patients know if their expectations aren’t realistic.
Tummy tuck revision surgery to correct an unsightly, or raised scar, unnatural-looking bellybutton, or to remove additional excess skin are all possible procedures that Dr. Beckenstein performs. Patients may also come in after liposuction performed by another surgeon to smooth out lumpy, uneven contours.
How Much Does Revision Surgery Cost?
The cost of revision plastic surgery can often exceed what you paid for the initial procedure because it is usually more complicated and requires a higher level of skill. The cost depends on the reason for the revision surgery, and we provide patients with detailed price quotes to review before deciding on moving forward with surgery. We also work with companies that specialize in health care financing for qualified patients.
