Tummy Tuck Scars Can Be Minimized
Tummy Tucks are a common procedure and highly desired by both men and women to provide a sculpted look, often after losing weight. However, it does produce a scar. The scar produced by a tummy tuck can be a source of anxiety by potential patients.
How big is a tummy tuck scar and can it be hidden? Women most often are concerned that a tummy tuck scar will show while wearing a bikini or their typical underwear. Most of the time, a scar does not show while wearing a bikini.
To know for sure, it’s a good idea to bring your bathing suit to a tummy tuck consultation so your doctor can see how it appears while you’re wearing it. The length of the scar depends on the extent of the procedure being performed and the needs of the patient. There are also techniques available to minimize scar appearance. You can ask about these at your consultation.
