While abdominoplasty remains one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for both men and women, one of the primary concerns for many people is how their scar may look post-surgery. As such, many people ask if their tummy tuck scars will go away.
Fortunately, there are a few things you can do during your recovery process to help minimize the appearance of your post-tummy tuck scar.
Follow Your Plastic Surgeon’s Aftercare Instructions
The single most important tummy tuck recovery tip is to follow your plastic surgeon’s guidelines as closely as possible.
