Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin and, in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer. . C-section incisions can, sometimes, be reused for a tummy tuck. The resulting scar is often longer than the older one. Other times, the C-section scar is completely removed with the excess skin and replaced by the incision from the tummy tuck. The length of the scar also depends on the type of tummy tuck performed; mini, standard, or extended tummy tuck. The scar from abdominoplasty is low enough to be covered by pants, undergarments, and swimwear. There will not be two sets of scars. . TAG a friend and FOLLOW us @medical.uptodate
