Help for Scarring after Tummy Tuck

When I perform tummy tuck in the Baltimore area, patients often express concerns about obvious scarring. Although scars are to be expected, they are discreetly placed and can be improved with new technology.

Procedural techniques also reduce the impact postoperative scarring can have. Fashion-savvy plastic surgeons are aware of low-rise styling in apparel. Taking into consideration clothing styles and men and women’s privacy and self-confidence, surgeons in the know will often make incisions lower on the abdomen. These lower incisions can be more easily concealed beneath the clothing.

Lasers have revolutionized medicine, and it’s no different for the field of cosmetic medicine. In the case of abdominoplasty, or tummy tucks, lasers are now used to diminish the appearance of scars following surgery. But skillfully placed incisions should reduce the need for postoperative laser touch-ups.
