Carla Tummy Tuck Forum; Tummy Tuck Message Board, Abdominoplasty Forum I had a liposuction and tummy tuck the same day. When I went back to the PS for my first visit, I thought I had a large bruise. Instead it was black and my doctor said it was dead skin cells. Now I need another surgery to get rid of this problem. I have heard of skin graphs to cover the hole they put in your tummy to cover what was cut out. Can you give me some idea of what they are going to do? I am 53 and weigh 135. Tummy Tuck Forum Response – Carla, Sorry, but I don’t know. I never had that problem and don’t know anything about that kind of surgery. The best thing would be to call or go back to your surgeon for a full explanation. Good luck. Tanner
