Stretch marks after tummy tuck
Thank you very much for your enquiry, I
think the answer to this is yes you do have stretch marks around the tummy
button and these are essentially tears in the underlying tissues of the skin
and generally are not that well treated with surgery.
If you are concerned about them it may be
worthwhile popping in to see your surgeon to discuss treatment options for
These look like stretch marks and it all depends on where and how many you had pre op.This is not uncommon post tummy tuck.everyone gets usually a few stretch marks and soem women will get a significant number.
Do you have stretch marks after tummy tuck
It is very unlikely that your tummy tuck would create new stretch marks. I have never seen this happen and 31 years.
Most likely the stretch marks that you see our ones that you had before surgery that have simply been moved down and into the skin around your belly button. Most of the stretch marks ICR quite which indicates they are old. This early after surgery the inflammation caused by surgery could cause older stretch marks to appear more pink or red.
It would be unusual but anything is possible. Only IN PERSON examinations allow a better response...
Sometimes there are stretch marks after tummy tuck
Your stretch marks were likely higher up on your abdomen and were moved down, and they were most likely not caused by your procedure. As as your swelling goes away, they may change in appearance.
Yes, you do have stretch marks, however, they were most likely there before surgery and have now been moved into a new position where they may be more visible.
