Secondary body contouring, or revising the results of a patient’s prior body shaping surgery, can be deeply challenging for even the most seasoned plastic surgeon...Grant Stevens, MD, and feature panelists Kristoffer Ning Chang, MD, Joseph P...Wall, Jr., MD.

“Even when faced with difficult revision challenges, there are ways we can create a beautiful, satisfying look for many patients,” said Dr. Stevens of Marina Del Rey, CA. “Our panelists will guide the audience through the methods they’ve found to be most effective for dealing with liposuction revisions and other body contouring corrections.”

“The artistry and skill of plastic surgery is really put to the test when you take on the challenge of improving upon previous surgery,” added Dr. Rubin of Pittsburgh, PA. “It is a far different situation from performing a procedure on a patient who has never had an operation on that part of the body.”

Even when qualified plastic surgeons try to achieve the ideals of “thinner,” “tighter,” or “flatter” for their body contour patients, some outcomes may not be as expected due to unpredictable complications or variables in the healing process, requiring the surgeon to go back in for revision. The greatest difficulty, however, is correcting problems that stem from procedures performed by unqualified practitioners outside of the plastic surgery field. Do It to Me One More Time
