Why do I need to have such a long scar?

Major body contour surgery such as a tummy tuck, is much like tailoring. If we take out all or most of the skin from the belly button, we need to taper our skin removal to the sides, in order to prevent bunching up and bulges. It’s a little like “taking in” a loose pair of jeans along an inseam; you can’t just do it at one point. It needs to be done all the way down the inseam. Unfortunately scars are the price of smoother, tighter skin and tighter muscles. Generally, because scars fade over time and are placed in locations where they are relatively well concealed, the trade-off is well worth it. Feel free to speak with one of our Broadway Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Centre professionals about your scar concerns.
