I am 42 years old - a runner and yoga teacher. Two C secsions left me with excess skin, and 3 abdominal surgeries left with me a "ledge".
I am very pleased with my tummy tuck with a few exceptions.
1 I am concerned about my vertical scar - it opened up where my old belly button was, and has very dark skin stretches around it - hoping it will eventually heal.
2. Said scar will be above my bikini line - need to go for the high-rise bottoms now which is a bummer to me 3.
Large pocket of swelling above my horizontal incision on the right side not going anyhere aspirated once, and 4.
Still a lot of stretch marks. I thought more would have gone away.
All that being said - I'd do it again in a heartbeat - I feel fantastic in my clothes, and am hoping that time will cure the rest.I had atummy tuck 7 weeks ago. My surgeon used a T incision on me, as I had a lot of stretch marks. I have two questions 1. Can you have a "dog ear" at the top of the vertical incision, and 2. The stitches didnt hold where my old belly button used to be - now I have a hole - or a second belly button. The skin around this hole is very dark and ugly. I am wondering - is this normal, and will this heal eventually? I dont smoke am in very good physical condition, I LOVE the part from my new belly button on up though!
