One of the biggest disadvantages of having a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty procedure is that it leaves scars. Scarring is a natural part of the healing, but everyone found them a bit unappealing. So how bad is the scarring with a tummy tuck?
It really depends on the type of procedure you had. With lower partial tummy tucks or scar is much more visible than the full tummy tuck. The scars are permanent, but the surgeon makes an incision that will leave a scar below the bikini line so that they are not visible.

Extreme bruising and swelling can be avoided by following postoperative instructions carefully. Tummy tuck scars actually have a tendency to look worse three to six months after surgery, then slowly begins to flatten out and lighten in color.
A full tummy tuck scar reaching from hip to hip in the lower abdomen and around the navel. This is because two incisions must be made for a full tummy tuck. A full tummy tuck involves removing excess skin and fat; tighten muscles and repositioning the navel.
The tummy tuck procedure only produced a single scar. These scars are in a horizontal line in the lower abdomen. No scars were made around the navel because this procedure is not so broad that the navel needs to be surgically removed.
Other complications can increase how visible scars from a tummy tuck procedure. If the liposuction procedure is also done at the same time with a tummy tuck, which is quite common, there may be some skin irregularity. There is also the possibility that the patient will experience bleeding or infection.
