How Visible Are Abdominplasty Scars?

If you are thinking about having abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), you may be wondering how your stomach will look when you are wearing things such as a swimsuit or low rise jeans. This is a common question and concern amongst people who are considering this type of surgical procedure.

Generally, the incision made during abdominoplasty is kept low, below your natural panty line. The only exception to this is when a person is undergoing a reverse tummy tuck. Another incision is made and hidden within the belly button to keep the appearance of scars minimal.

When the incisions are made in this manner, the scars from such a procedure will not be visible when you are wearing a swimsuit. If you do have scars from abdominplasty that are of concern to you because they are visible, you may want to consider revision surgery. In this case, you'll want to discuss your options with a Westlake Village plastic surgeon.
