Revision Body Contouring and Liposuction

Conveniently located to serve St. Louis, Missouri

Dr. Cabbabe’s revision body contouring practice has grown significantly as more patients choose weight loss surgery and cosmetic surgery to meet their goals. Not all cosmetic surgeons are board – certified plastic surgeons and even then, not all board -certified plastic surgeons have the same level of technical ability, experience and expertise. The need for greater skin removal, increased use of liposuction and long operating room times lead to significant disparities in patient outcomes, often adverse in inexperienced hands. Patients are seen weekly in our practice with revision requests after having plastic surgery locally or distant.

Common revisions are for botched liposuction with associated fibrosis, particularly when skin removal was needed and over-suctioning of areas was done, particularly the central abdomen. Many surgeons only treat limited areas of the abdomen, back and body, particularly when the procedure was done awake, limiting the ability of the surgeon to correctly treat and sculpt due to patient pain. Many times, revision liposuction, fat injections and skin removal are needed, and these are complex cases.

Revisions tummy tucks are performed regularly after prior liposuction, inadequate panniculectomy surgery, high scars, uneven scars, untreated pubic tissue/FUPA, belly button/umbilical deformities and lack of abdominal definition.


Dr. Cabbabe is the plastic surgeon that other plastic surgeons refer their difficult cases or complications to. He was able to repair me and make me whole again. I am so thankful that he is practicing here in St. Louis.
