How to Fix Too Tight Tummy Tuck results?

It has been 3 years since my tummy tuck surgery...I'm miserable. It is so tight that I can't wear anything but elastic. When I exercise the muscles will go into spasms. I have no waist anymore and look like I'm 3-4 months pregnant. Is there anyway to fix this???

Tummy Tuck Problems

It sounds like you have a few different things going on here. If you're too tight then it would be a bit unusual for you to have no waist and look like your pregnant. Abdominoplasty deals with excess skin and then tightening your core (your rectus muscles). Muscle spasm may be caused by rectus plication but this usually goes away with time. Tight skin closure usually loosens up over time. In fact most abdominoplasties can be revised about a year afterwards. It really sounds like your profile is part of your concern and that sounds like things may be too loose, not too tight. I would seek a board certified plastic surgeon to perform a complete history and physical and I would bring your previous operative records. I hope this helps.
