Im 4 weeks out on a full TT and am happy with the overall result, but not with how high my scar is on the sides and how my stretch marks are bunch up together on the sides.
Im 29 and have 4 children 1,3,9 and 12 years of age so saying that thats why i had a TT done. I've been very down about this and need answers from an outside source besides my family they only try to make me feel better but i need answers so i can go on with my life. I would like to know if a scar revision involves the same procedure as the first , what is the down time as far as recovery, does the whole scar need to be opened or just the sides, make a new belly button over again, is the pain the same as the first(it hurt like hell i rather go thru labor again) going under again, risk, (theres always a trade off), etc.??
Its a really stressful journey and especialy when you take time off for caring for your children and husband taking time off work, its a big sacrifice. And when you make that big sacrifice you want to be completely happy with the results. Im 29 and i still wear low rider jeans and really was looking forward to wearing them with a small top without my scar creeping out so much. I know its not much of a problem, i've seen worst but i sacrifced alot to get this done and to not be completely satisfied it sucks. So is going through this again worth it? I just thought i would be happy and now i questione myself if it was worth it.

I got a TT done because of my 4 pregnancies. I am not happy with the sides of my scars, they are too high and am unable to wear low rider jeans. I am happy with my belly button and how low my scar is by my pubic area. But my sides are really stressing me. It creeps out on all my jeans and was hoping to wear small shirts to show off my hips and stomach. Can the sides be lowered only or do i need the whole scar to be redone.? and if it is even possible to do anything to fix the scar on the sides so they dont creep out?Does a scar revision after a TT involve the same procedure as the first time, how long is the recovery time, is pain the same as the first time, do i have to go under again, risk, etc.?? Im 4weeks out of surgery and not completely happy with how high my scar is on the sides and how bunched up my stretch marks are on the sides. Overall it looks good but going through all of what invovles a TT i want to be completely happy with the results and im not.
