TT scar is high? (Photos)

Mini tummy tuck?
Hello, based on the location of the incision around the belly button and the vertical scar, this looks like a full tummy tuck result. However, your plastic surgeon should be able to clarify exactly what was done and the reason for the incisions in their current position rather than lower above the pubic mound.

Your scar, which is too high appears to be from a full tummy tuck. You need to wait for post op healing ab\nd scar maturation. It may drop a little, but a revision will be necessary at some point. Lowering a scar such as this is not easy especially in the lateral portions.
That is a full abdominoplasty, not a mini. You should discuss this with your plastic surgeon. Yes, your scar is high. It also has some asymmetry. First, you need to heal from this operation. There isn't anything to do right now. Once it settles in you will need to have a good discussion on what you want out of this. Fixes are possible, but some of them are pretty intensive and not perhaps what you would want.

Is my scar too high after TT surgery?
It would appear that you had a full TT procedure. This may have been the desired procedure for you. I tend to recommend this often during my consultations with patients, but this should always have been discussed this with your Plastic Surgeon before surgery had been considered. Your scar does appear to be too high, but I don't know how you looked preoperatively, and this is so early to the time of the procedure. Trust your Plastic Surgeon to give you the correct answer to this question.
Good luck to you.
