I had a tummy tuck about 7 weeks ago. Right after surgery I noticed a purple line from my belly button to the TT incesion. I was told it was dead skin and that it should go away. The line has converted into a scar. I am just worried that I may have this scar permanently below my belly button and that I will not be able to wear a two piece bathing suit. Would this scar go away on its own? Should I be treating it? I have been using a Silicon tape over it...but it has not helped much. Thx!
Would This Scar Heal over Time from A TT?
