For most women, the lower abdomen is one of the most troubling areas of stubborn fat and unwanted excess skin. Especially with lifestyle changes, including pregnancy, weight gain and loss, age, and more, life takes a toll on your toned tummy.

Most women who feel this way look to plastic surgery procedures, such as a tummy tuck in Tampa, also known as an abdominoplasty. Based on the latest statistics, the tummy tuck procedure is in the top five for the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the United States. The primary downfall to a tummy tuck is the scar that comes with it. However, there is a new technique, called the “low scar tummy tuck,” providing results of a tummy tuck while keeping your incision scar hidden.

Low Scar Tummy Tuck

With the lower scar abdominoplasty in Lakeland, FL, plastic surgeons are focusing on placing the incision lower in the pubic area, so women can still wear a bikini comfortably. This procedure is a great solution to a flatter tummy for patients who have lost a lot of weight, were pregnant, or had multiple pregnancies.

Scarring – The Fear of Plastic Surgery

Scarring is one of the main worries when patients undergo cosmetic surgery in Brandon, because no one wants a scar. The lower scar tummy tuck puts the scar in a place where it can be covered, which can significantly increase the patient’s satisfaction of their outcome. Some plastic surgeons are also doing a lot of revision tummy tuck procedures to correct high-placed scars on the abdomen, resulting a more natural, slimmer, and no-show scar appearance.
