Bad Scaring from Tummy Tuck
Acne

I'm stuck with this awful scar from my previous tummy tuck. The doctor who did it is now long gone because of botching many surgeries. He used staples and sutures, it was a mess. So I'm stuck with this. I just want to be able to have a nice low, straight, and skinny scar. Is this possible. Is a revision possible?

Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done NOW. You need to wait some time for the skin to loosen before you can have a revision.
One can think of skin stretching procedures (tissue (more)
