Plan tummy tuck with transplant surgeon too

Based on your pictures, you may have a good result. See an experienced plastic surgeon as your scars need to be considered.

You will need a modified tummy tuck given your existing scars. You probably need a pre-op ultrasound to locate the transplant and protect it during surgery. Most important, your plastic surgeon needs to examine you, plan surgery carefully and get written permission from your nephrologist and transplant surgery. The worst outcome would be a good tummy tuck result but a damaged transplant. Best wishes/
