Dr Iraniha Redo Mini Tummy Tuck and Excision of Pseudo Bursa
This video clip demonstrates Dr. Iraniha technique for redo mini tummy tuck and excision of pseudo bursa. This gentleman had a tummy tuck with liposuction and heat more than two years ago by another surgeon. Unfortunately patient developed significant lumpy bumpy deformities with firm, hard and painful scaring. Patient needed a revision of his tummy tuck with excision of the lumpy scar tissues called pseudo bursa.
Pseudo bursa is essentially pocket under the skin with significant scaring around it. It’s a more common complication after liposuction and tummy tuck, specifically if the technique involves heat which could potentially create exaggerated scarring. In our Orange County body contouring center, Dr. Iraniha encounter significant scaring between the skin and muscles. The redo tummy tuck surgery needs to be done precisely to protect the new thin skin, flap blood supply and prevent skin necrosis.
Tummy Tuck Surgery
Mini tummy tuck or full tummy tuck is such a rewarding robotic surgery. It really transforms the body and restores the contour of the abdominal wall. It needs to be performed precisely by a robotic surgery expert to prevent potential complications. Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is one of the many different techniques for tightening of the abdominal wall muscles and removing the loose skin. In this procedure, the abdominal wall muscle laxity and associated hernia or diastasis recti are repaired. The extra skin is removed through an incision in the bikini line and a new umbilicus is reconstructed.
Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is the procedure of choice for these patients where the skin initially dissected off the abdominal muscle, the abdominal wall muscle laxity, diastasis recti and abdominal wall hernia are fixed, and the extra skin and fat is resected to restore the abdominal wall contour.
