Hi I'm su I went to turkey for a tummy tuck and uplift it all went wrong the skin turned black and I had to have 4 debridements and a skin graft the area is a big one snot 10 inches round my belly button is in the wrong place and it took me 9 months to heal ! Because I talked to a magazine the surgeon will not talk to me I'm hoping someone will be able to reconstruct my belly it's hideous!! Also my breasts are very badly scarred and the implants were too small 175cl ?? They are droopy and stretched
This should not be construed as medical advice. I am a retired Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Welcome to our forum.
When I was still in practice, the first step was to document the current problem using the standard pictures mentioned in the prior post. The next step was to evaluate what happened. This included getting the documentation from the surgeon such as the operative report, patient records such as the history and consult report, and after surgery care. These can be helpful when a revision surgeon is trying to understand factors that may have contributed to the problems.
Beyond that, tissues need to heal before considering most revision surgery. This can take some time. Options will depend on the original problem, what was done during the surgery, what was done during the debridement, and many other factors.
Why did you travel to Turkey for your Tummy Tuck?
We have resources here on How to Pick a Tummy Tuck Surgeon
, but in this case, the doctor should have examples of their skills at revision tummy tuck, breast lift revision, and or scar revision.
For my patients, Scar Care
was stressed, it can be an important factor as well as a Second Stage Tummy Tuck Garment
to help with pressure for scar maturation. The garments come in different lengths depending on clothing preferences. Some patients used more than one style for various outer clothing needs such as Abdominal Brief No Zipper After Tummy Tuck Second Stage Garment
The breast is a separate issue and images / videos would have been the starting point too.
General issues that may complicate things can include bad scarring tendencies, and other issues that can be critical before considering any form of revision and for some other elective surgery.
Hope this helps,
