One of the big concerns and drawbacks with tummy tucks is the infamous tummy tuck scars! Depending on whether it’s a mini tummy tuck procedure, or a full blown abdominoplasty, the scars can vary greatly.
The mini tummy tuck scars are quite small and can be easily concealed under your bikini or panties. No one but your significant other will every know. This partial or lower tummy tuck is the first choice for many women, but not realistic for many of them carrying too much weight in the lower abdominal region.
On the other hand the tummy tuck surgery scars from a full abdominoplasty go from one hip to the other hip in the lower abdominal region, and the scar will also be seen around the navel or belly button area.
You must know that there are two incisions made when you have a full tummy tuck procedure. The first is an incision (horizontal) and the second is around the navel area in the shape of a circle.
These incisions are necessary to be able to get rid of the excess skin and fat from the stomach region, tighten the abdominal muscles, and reposition the navel. As you can see the tummy tuck scars from this procedure will be more extensive.
Ultimately it’s your decision, but going on the input of a credible tummy tuck surgeon is wise.
