Abdominoplasty. Repair

I had a full tummy tuck 2 years ago. I?m shaped really funny. My stitches from my upper abdomen have come undone and my muscles in the upper abdomen are separated again along with sagging skin there% The original dr told me that skin was no good so performing a second tummy tuck and repair the muscles. I?m 63 years old so that?s reason the skin in my upper abdomen is too thin according to my original dr. Went and got another opinion from a board certified(American board of plastic surgery) of course. He wants to give me lip in the upper abdomen and a mini abdominoplasty. I?m afraid it might not stay since the other dr said the skin was too thin. Should I go with the second drs opinion?
