It has been almost 3 months since my surgery - full TT. I was told by 3 surgeons, including the one who did my TT, that I should expect small t-scar (less than 2sm - he said). I woke up to 2 inches scar right under my navel. In addition I have loose skin on top. Blood supply issue - was his explanation, however, he did lipo on upper abs after shaping new navel. is this normal? I'm reading lipo can contribute to blood supply issues. Later he said I was so tight he could not pull more. Opinions?
Is This a Normal Result of Full TT? Vertical Scar and Loose Skin

Vertical scar and loose skin after tummy tuck
Tummy Tuck Scars Loose Skin
Sorry but I am very confused. You state you had a full tummy tuck but I do not see a horizontal scar. I only see a scar around your belly button and the vertical scar from your belly button down toward your pubic area but the scar stops. Unless you have a horizontal scar I cannot see, you did not have a "full" tummy tuck.
