Variety of Tummy Tuck Scars

Patients in Newport Beach have claimed the tummy tuck to be one of the most gratifying procedures plastic surgery has to offer. Often time’s women who are candidates for a tummy tuck have tried tirelessly to tighten their tummy in the gym and by dieting, but to no avail. When abdominal muscles are torn and abused from pregnancy, and excess skin won’t go away, no matter how many crunches you do, the tummy tuck may be your only option.

When considering a tummy tuck, Newport Beach women have a lot of questions concerning the scar that will be left behind. How large will it be? Where will it be? Etc… There are three main types of tummy tuck and they all leave very different types of scars.

  1. The Standard Tummy Tuck

    This tummy tuck will leave you with a scar from hip to hip, just above your pubic hair line. This scar is usually easily covered up with underwear or pants. Sometimes the standard tummy tuck scar can come up too far for some patients. In this case you may be a candidate for a tummy tuck scar revision. This procedure requires enough excess tissue to allow your surgeon to re-open and re- position the tummy tuck scar lower.

  2. The Mini Tummy Tuck

    The scar from this procedure is usually much smaller and can even be made in the bellybutton if the patient has no excess fat or skin above the bellybutton.

  3. The Extended Tummy Tuck

    The scar for this tummy tuck procedure is similar to the one of a standard tummy tuck except it extends out past the hip bones to include the love handles.
