Tummy tuck scar revision
- Your scar looks dark brown - one reason it is noticeable.
- If your skin is loose, an incision should bring it down a bit.
- It will be noticeable again if it goes brown - so be sure to use skin bleaching cream on the skin 2 x a day for a month in advance - and keep it protected from the sun.
- You can definitely have liposuction at the same time -
- And you can definitely have that fat injected into the buttocks - but be sure the surgeon explains the risks.

High Tummy Tuck Scar
Liposuction of the flanks and back can be done and the fat can be transferred to the buttock but a formal consultation would be required to determine the amount of fat which can be obtained for grafting.
Seek out a board certified plastic surgeon to evaluate you and guide you on this important decision.
Good luck and I hope this was helpful
Poorly Placed Tummy Tuck Incision
Your scar is too high and your skin is too tight to get any meaningful movement of your scar.
This is really unfortunate. Your surgeon, like the majority of my colleagues, places a priority on 'getting the hole out' instead of scar placement. This is backwards, and instead we should care not if there is a hole in your skin (from where it was attached to your belly button) that needs to be closed; this leaves a much more inconspicuous short vertical scar and allows placement of the main incision where it belongs, along the border between thigh and abdomen.
You should move forward with your liposuction and fat grafting, but maybe you should interview a few more ABPS certified/ASAPS member surgeons.
Best of luck!
Lowering the scar can be done to a small extent but I would advise you lost as much weight as possible beforehand. This would make the possible gains larger.
