Scars To Expect After
Abdominoplasty scar is something that can never be avoided after abdominoplasty
surgery. However, it is good to know about how much scarring to expect before going through the actual surgery.
Normally, there will be scar that will settle in the lower abdomen. In the case of full abdominoplasty, the scar is
anticipated to be long and large.
Moreover, after full abdominoplasty surgery, the scar would stretch from side to
side above bikini line. There will also be a scar round belly button because in some point of the operation, the
surgeon might reposition the belly button to fit perfectlyto your new tummy. It is actually one of the downsides of
abdominoplasty because in exchange of a flatter tummy is a visible scar.
Furthermore, there are some instances where a vertical incision is necessary.
Therefore, aside from the horizontal abdominoplasty scar, a vertical scar will appear. As a result, an inverted T
like scar will pose in your tummy. However, most of the highly skilled surgeons are trained to craft the incisions
very neatly and the result is extremely unnoticeable.
There are many patients that describes abdominoplasty scar as something like a thin
line. But few days after the surgery, you cannot expect the scars to appear like hairlines. In fact, you can expect
that after the operation, the scar will appear ugly, thick and red. Eventually, the scars would relax and would get
better and better each day. Sometimes, it may take eighteen months before it improve into a much lighter
On the contrary, abdominoplasty scar may split. If this happen, the scar will
definitely get thicker and larger which will result to a longer recovery period and all the more heavy scars. In
this case, another procedure is necessary to improve the appearance of the scar.
