Is There a Higher Rick of Necrosis when a Revising a Tummy Tuck?

Revision Tummy Tuck Surgery (http://www.plasticsurgery4u.com/revision_tummy_tuck/index.html) is an art form. You really need to see examples of a surgeon's skills and methods before undertaking such a sculpture.

The Risks of Tummy Tuck Surgery (http://www.plasticsurgery4u.com/procedure_folder/abdominoplasty2.html) increase for some revision surgery depending on what needs to be done. The blood supply to tissues has changed. Understanding what was done before, skillful techniques all minimize such issues, but this question is best directed to the doctor who has examined the problem, the previous operative report(s), and his / her plan to offer such advice.

Damaged scared tissues are at higher risk than tissue that has not been injured by prior surgery. Necrosis and loss of structures is also at risk when surgeons use certain techniques that tend to injure tissues more.

Hope this helps,
