It will soften with time

Tummy Tuck Scars
Thank you for your question.
The tummy tuck scar may start harder and will soften with time. I generally say that a scar can take up to 1-1.5 years to mature / heal completely and that is when you will see the final results.
Tummy Tuck, will my scar soften?
Yes, it is normal for your scar to be hard after a Tummy, it will continue to harden for up to 8 weeks, then it will start to soften after that, scars reach their final maturity at 1.5 years, it will continue to change over that time. Good luck with you recovery.
