Revision Tummy Tuck & Revision Mommy Makeover

Not getting the outcome you want from your surgery sucks, we are here to make sure that doesn’t happen again. Two concepts to think about going into a revision procedure:
  1. The hard thing to do is the right thing to do (bigger operation, longer scars, for a better life)
  2. Trade what you want now for what you want most (longer downtime for a better life)

Overview of Revision Tummy Tuck Surgery

Who is it for: someone who had a tummy tuck and mommy makeover but are not happy with the results. What is the problem: scar is too high, scar is not long enough, belly button is weird, skin is still loose overall they did not accomplish their goal. Why does this matter: you deserve to be the hero of your own story. Our goal is to guide and take you from problem to solution

Why do we do so many revision mommy makeover and revision tummy tuck surgeries?

I think the answer to this is quite simple. As surgeons we need to spend more time listening and less time talking. We must seek to understand before we seek to be understood. Patients and all humans seek to be valued, heard, and cared for. These are insatiable human cravings. Unfortunately, many consultations are superficial in nature and not diving into the emotions, fears, and feelings that are truly driving someone to make such a monumental decision such as having surgery. Most of the time and understandably the patients want to “minimize” or do a ”little lipo” or a “little skin job” or “nothing too serious”. This is what the surgeon hears and complies with an operation that the patients wants but everyone knows and nobody wants to say it, its not the operation the patient needs to get the results they deserve. The goal of the surgeon is to serve not to sell, the goal of the consultation is to help patients make the best decision possible, sometimes that means having surgery, sometimes it means not having surgery and sometimes it means having surgery with someone else. Honestly, as long as I know I am being the best doctor and truly helping someone in their life I don’t worry at all if they choose not to have surgery with me or not to have surgery at all. Surgery cannot be sales, humans are not widgets, every patient has a unique story and journey. So how do we build a bridge of trust so you can feel comfortable and confident having another (more complex and bigger) surgery than you did the first time. For many this means leaving their loved ones and travelling across the country or across the globe.
  1. Listen to your goals
  2. Build a relationship
  3. Make sure we always have your concerns, well being, and feelings as top priority
  4. Proof (without undeniable proof, 1,2,3 do not matter). We have completed so many cases with so many happy community members (patients) and have the testimonials, videos, pictures, contacts etc to prove it so you don’t have to worry about making the wrong decision again.

Let’s Look at Some Cases

Why are people willing to undergo a revision tummy tuck procedure?

Interestingly, the patients who seek revision tummy tuck or revision mommy makeover surgery are incredibly strong, insightful, and happy people living fulfilling lives. They want to optimize their life and prove to themselves that there is another level of enjoyment of life available.

Many surgeons don’t want to take on revision cases because they are hard and it’s even harder to make people satisfied. John F. Kennedy at his famous thrilling speech in 1962 at Rice University said, “We choose to go to the moon not because it is easy but because it is hard, that goal will organize and energize our skills, that challenge is worth it. It is not surprising that some would accept the status quo and rest but this Country was conquered by those who choose not to rest and are willing to go forward”.

History has taught us that our passion for knowledge and progress cannot be deterred and in our own way we keep these immortal words true to our hearts as a beacon for the way we practice.

We take on hard cases because we have the grit factor to dig in and use every ounce of skill and resource possible to try and help these people find their sense of self they sought in the first place. It’s not easy but we find the challenge to be worth it.

I cannot rave enough on how amazing and outstanding I found Dr. Neinstein to be. He came highly recommended to me by a friend which was a Godsend. I met with other doctors for consults & no one comes even close to his bedside manner in its entirety
