Pros: Smaller waste line

Cons: Huge scar going up and down, Saggy skin,

I did the tummy tuck because it looked like I had a small pouch when I wore clothes, even though my stomach was flat, is was all skin. I live in Cali and go to the beach all the time. I though I would be able to wear a bikini again, but not with the HUGE Vertical scar. It looks horible!!! I know it's only been 3 weeks, but Im feel like the scar may fade, but the wrinkle will remain..... What do you all think...???

I just had a full tummy tuck 3 weeks ago. I have MANY question?? I did not have enough skin to have my old belly button removed. I want to know why my scar from my old Belly button is SOOO long? There is still a fold (wrinkle) going all the way down from my New belly button to my scar. Will this stay there? I also have some saggy skin on my stomach when I lay down.... Does this all look correct? I feel like I traded some mild saggy skin for HUGE SCARS !!! Thanks :) ps. I also had my abs tightened
