Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) & Top Concerns
Updated: Oct 11, 2022
How long will it take to see the results from this procedure? The length of time to see the results from a tummy tuck depends on the extent of the procedure and how well a patient heals, but the excess skin will be gone immediately. The patient will have swelling for several weeks after the procedure, but compression garments can help minimize the swelling and cut down the healing time. Majority of patients will see results after 3-6 months, though ultimate results will be evident 6-9 months after the surgery, when the swelling has completely subsided.
Will I scar from a Tummy Tuck procedure?
The scar from a tummy tuck depends greatly on the patient and the extent of the procedure. The scar will be a horizontal incision from hip to hip but it will be placed low on the abdomen so it will be hidden by even the skimpiest of bikinis.
