Tummy Tuck Incision
Want a flat belly but not the scar that goes along with it?
To get the desired result from a tummy tuck, skin and fat is usually removed. Liposuction may also be performed around the hips or other areas. Separated muscles are repaired. To perform all of this well, a sizeable incision is made.
You may be surprised at how well your incision heals. Patience and understanding is often vital in obtaining a satisfactory result from a tummy tuck procedure.
Tummy tuck healing can take weeks or months, though 4-6 weeks is typical. After the initial recovery time, most people can resume normal activities (your doctor can advise you). The tummy tuck incision and resulting scar will continue to heal and fade over time. Undergarments usually hide the scar from a tummy tuck procedure.
