How bad are the scars from a tummy tuck?

0

Although the scar from tummy tuck can be a relatively long scar, it is usually not a bad scar. I spend a lot of time meticulously placing many sutures under the skin to reduce spreading of the scar and to prevent marks from the stitches. All of the skin stitches that I put in are absorbable and are buried under the surface of the skin. I do not believe in using staples instead of stitches to speed up a surgery. The scar around the belly button is usually a fairly fine line. Some patients have a tendency to form thick, hard scars regardless of how careful the surgeon is.
