What will my scar look like from abdominoplasty surgery?

Stuart A. Linder, MD
Plastic Surgery
Scarring from abdominoplasties can range from excellent to horrible. There is no guarantee as to the final appearance of your scar. If you do develop a keloid and/or hypertrophic scarring, I recommend a dermatologist inject steroids early on if you are a candidate. Speak with a well-informed board-certified dermatologist who does injections of Kenalog or other steroids.
