Tummy Tuck Scar - How Does It Look after 1 year?

I saw a lot of pictures of scar after tummy tuck but pictures are always taken shortly or few months after surgery. However they recover for more than one year? Can you post some pictures taken year or later after tummy tuck? Scar after 4-6 months is .....pretty scarry. It is very noticable, red, convex. For me scar is basic concern, much more important than pain - pain will pass, scar will be present for rest of life. What should I expect after 1,5 year? thank you for replies in advance.

I am curious too about the scarring after one, two, five, ten years...can someone post links to photos of scare after several years? For some reason, I cannot view the pics on profiles. Thanks.
I have posted my pictures from nine months. Will post again at one year


You look wonderful!  Your tummy is so nice and flat!  That's right we were just a week a part in our surgery.  Where does the time go???

I am also going to post new pictures at one year (April 14th).
I cannot see your photos :(

I will let you know in April when I hit my one year.  I will post new pictures at that time.

Thanks for posting your discussion on RealSelf!

From what I've seen it fades to a purplish color and then more to a skin-tone. Generally it takes about 2 years for it to fully fade. Here's some info from doctors on Tummy Tuck scars.
