About Body Revision

Although body procedures can provide incredible benefits to patients, sometimes the results can be unsatisfactory. A patient may not have healed properly, or their original surgeon may not have done a very good job. Sometimes the problem is scarring. In many of these cases, Dr. G can skillfully perform a body revision procedure to correct unsatisfactory results from a previous procedure.

Choosing an Expert for Revision Procedures

When a patient decides to have a surgery done a second time or more, it’s of the utmost importance to only work with a revision specialist, such as Dr. Grzeskiewicz. The reason why it’s so critical to choose a body revision specialist is because these surgeries are much more complex than the first surgery.

The doctor must have experience working with scar tissue, old incisions, and altered anatomy, and they and must understand exactly how to correct the effects of unexpected healing problems or even another surgeon’s mistakes. Besides all this, a body revision specialist will know how to best manage your feelings and expectations. Patients who are undergoing the same surgery again are often emotionally impacted, and will need an extra level of care. 


Revision Tummy Tuck

An abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) can be a life-changing procedure for those who are unhappy with their stomach. However, surgery does not always go as planned, and many tummy tuck patients are unsatisfied with their results—especially if pregnancy or fluctuating weight causes problems. As always, the way the scars heal can also be an area of concern. Residual fat deposits can remain, there can be problems with the belly button, the muscle wall may not have been tightened enough, or the previous surgeon may not have removed enough skin. 

Dr. G’s revision abdominoplasty can address any of these issues, and more. He is the ideal surgeon to choose if you have undergone a tummy tuck and are unhappy with the way you now look—whether it’s because of your previous surgeon or because of your own personal body changes.

Revision Thigh Lift

A thigh lift is excellent for smoothing out wrinkled, crepey skin that causes the thighs to appear more aged than they actually are. The result of this procedure is supposed to be more attractive, contoured legs; however, some patients are unhappy with the outcome. The main reasons for individuals seeking a revision thigh lift is scarring; extra skin that was not removed or tightened; dimpled, lumpy, or uneven-looking skin; not enough fat being removed, and flabby skin that has collected around the thighs. Dr. G addresses all of these problems in a revision thigh lift.

Revision Body Lift

A body lift is an extensive surgery that is done to improve the appearance of sagging, loose skin that develops due to age, weight loss, or pregnancy.

Although this is typically a dramatic change for the better, sometimes patients are unhappy with the results. This may be because of scarring, skin that was not tightened enough, the appearance of new hip dips, “saddlebags” that are more prominent after the procedure, and more. 

Revision Liposuction

Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that is done to break up fat and remove it from the body. Revision liposuction is done when the first procedure leaves behind problems. This can be an unbalanced appearance; treatment that did not properly “blend” the liposuction with the surrounding areas; insufficient fat removal, or too much fat removal. Dr. G frequently performs fat transfer or fat equalization to correct problems arising from an original liposuction procedure. In equalization, the goal is to create a smoother surface contour so that it is even throughout. 

Revision Arm Lift

An arm lift is performed to remove flabby excess skin from the upper arms and smooth out crepey skin. However, many patients undergo this surgery and are disappointed when their arms still appear flabby, even after the procedure. This can happen when a patient loses weight, or perhaps when the previous surgeon didn’t correctly drape the skin. Other patients may be unhappy with the appearance or location of scars that are left behind on their arms. In cases like these, Dr. G can often perform a revision arm lift to correct the issues. The unwanted excess skin can be removed, and the appearance of scarring can be reduced.
