Why are some of my scars wider than others

Among the things that patients are most concerned about when it comes to tummy tuck surgery is the appearance of scars after they undergo operation. They often worry about the location of the scar and of course, the length. Most scars are permanent but you do not have to worry because some scars mature over a period of time. They can turn into fine lines after they get better over time.

However, after the tummy tuck procedure, most patients often wonder why their scars are often wider than the others. This is because there are certain areas where the incisions made heal differently based on the anatomical area.

The tension of the closure that varies across different areas of the scar is one of the top causes why the length of the scar differs from one another. Generally, the location with the highest tension is right at the midline. The distance between the upper and lower part of the belly is affected by the excess skin below the belly button that is cut and pulled downwards.

The sides of the scar will be noticeably thinner because it is cut at a 45-degree angle. Other factors that need to be considered when it comes to scarring is the skin tone of the patient.

Fortunately, tummy tuck scars are being given careful consideration today by developing different kinds of surgical technique. The recent developments in the field of surgical operations are mostly focused on reducing the tension of the scars. Having a balanced distribution of these tensions can provide the patient with more refined results. You just have to make sure that you choose a cosmetic surgeon that is already knowledgeable and experienced when it comes to this intervention and the new breakthroughs about this surgical procedure. Now, you don’t have to worry about having disgusting scar anymore!
