Does my tummy tuck scar appear higher on the right side, or is this due to the swelling?

I am 7 weeks post op. Also is that a "dogs ear" at the end of the right side of my scar, and will it disappear with time? Thanks

  • Your incision position looks fine to my review of the photo,
  • There is some slight assymmetry which is completely normal,
  • I do not see a dog ear - there is a little puckering which should smooth out in time. Best wishes.
