I am a contender for a full "Mommy Makeover" and am very concerened with scarring {although beats the alternative}. I would like to know if the Tummy Tuck scar can be placed practically in {or below } my pubic hairline and then the remainder, like thin thong straps up above my hip bone to give a discreet look undreneath my favorite undergarments or bikini?.

In most cases, yes. It may not always be possible to get a scar to fall exacly in the line of a string bikini, but a pair of briefs with a one or two inch side band should cover most tummy tuck scars if they are properly placed.

Your surgeon SHOULD design his tummy tuck scar to fit within your favorite pair of underwear. With most styles of underwear it is quite achievable but - with today's minimalistic styles of unwear this may not always be possible Read Bikini after tummy tuck
