Scar after male abdominoplasty/tummy tuck
I see where you are coming from in terms of your concern about the scar. Ideally, it would be a bit lower so it wouldn't show while wearing shorts and no shirt. That's not to say your surgeon didn't accomplish a lot, especially without seeing your pre-operative photos. Still, I think it is fair to return to a surgeon for a scar revision. Alternatively, Laser is an option to make it somewhat less visible.
Not where it would have ideally been placed

You would likely benefit from scar revision. Sometimes this is needed, especially if you had any delayed wound healing.
To be sure, see two or more experienced, board-certified Plastic Surgeons for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have surgery.
I hope this helps.
