Scars on the Abdominal Wall with Plans for Tummy Tuck

Scars on the abdominal wall may cause contour deformities and adhesions. These may result in undesirable aesthetic appearance. Treatment for scar adherence and cicatricial tethering may also indicate reduced tissue mobility which may also be undesirable.
Scars have altered blood flow and thus consideration to changes in vascular supply are part of the consideration while surgery for abdominal rejuvenation is being contemplated. The altered blood supply may lead to innovative approach to abdominal rejuvenation.
This may mean a combination of liposuction and minimal lower abdominal skin excision such as a mini abdominoplasty is a possibility.

Check with a board certified plastic surgeon who is a member of ASAPS as you make you evaluation.
