Tummy Tuck: Q&AAsk a Question
Would a Tummy Tuck or Scar Revision Surgery Be the Best Option to Minimize/remove my Abdominal Scar? (photo)
I have a very deep abdominal scar resulting from surgery that I had at one month old. I was born 10 weeks early and suffered from a bowel perforation that required emergency surgery. I had a section of my small intestine removed as well as a colostomy. I've had 2 children and will not be having any more. I have always felt extremely self conscious and hated how it looks and feels. What is the best way to minimize the appearance of the scar?
