Tummy tuck surgery flattens the abdomen by removing extra fat and skin, and often doctors will tighten muscles in your abdominal wall that have split. Women who have had several pregnancies and women and men who have experienced extreme weight loss, but still have excess fat deposits or loose skin around the belly, benefit the most from the procedure.


Full recovery after tummy tuck surgery takes time. There is no such thing as perfect surgery, often people experience numbness in the area, some unevenness in the appearance, a toughening of the skin, and, inevitably, scars. Though they may fade slightly, they will never completely disappear without professional help.

LPG Endermologie is one of the most effective post-surgical techniques, recommended by plastic surgeons worldwide for its effect on the skin and body. The treatment reduces your recovery time while ensuring better results. 


Other recommended treatments include Exilis to treat any leftover, stubborn fatty deposits as well as producing tighter, firmer skin.


For scarring, bruising, and redness Cold Laser treatments are recommended as this laser increases your cellular recovery, vascularization, and reduces the formation of scars.


IPL will improve the texture and color of the scars by removing pigment built up in the skin and encouraging the release of new collagen.


CO2 Fractional Laser and Microneedling may be used to resurface the scar and reduce its appearance once it is fully healed.


In extreme cases where the scar isn’t linear or if it is protruding consult with your plastic surgeon about scar revision surgery.



  • Wear loose-fitting, low-cut undergarments to avoid aggravating the scar tissue

  • Avoid strenuous activities such as lifting and/or pushing around heavy items

  • Quit smoking, as it greatly affects the healing and scarring process of the skin

  • Make sure to walk often, this reduces swelling, expedites the healing process, and reduces the risk of blood clots

  • Apply vitamin E topically, it can improve the appearance of scars

  • Avoid exposing the scarred area to the sun and always use sunscreen
