You probably got a tummy tuck to look and feel more confident. Not even thinking about what that surgery will leave behind.... that SCAR!
Getting a tummy tuck or mini tummy tuck can make a big difference in the way you look and feel, but the reality is that a complete tummy tuck is going to leave some scars, which can bring forth a whole set of new insecurities TT scars in most instances are going to be located in the mid to lower abdomen. A vertical incision and an incision around the belly button (from hip to hip) are also necessary in some cases. These scars can be rather long and severe, depending on the situation.
The extent of your tummy tuck scars is going to depend on how much skin is removed during surgery, the technique used to perform the surgery, the surgeon’s experience, and the health of your skin and its ability to heal.
While there are many options to get a tattoo design to cover up your scar, a simpler solution is a tattoo cover-up that matches your skin tone.
