How Do You Avoid Tension on the Incision During Healing?
In a tummy tuck, the external flesh is repositioned - I'm curious about closing of the incision and how tension/pulling is avoided. Is it usually closed with sutures or staples? Won't gravity (or any physical positions that either arch the spine or stretch the skin upwards) affect the scar healing? Also (similarly), what is the result if too much flesh were to be removed, causing an upright physical posture to pull too much on the sutures/staples? Hypothetically.
Reducing incision closure tension is important for better scars.
