Can Laser Treatments Erase Tummy Tuck Scars?

Throughout a woman’s life, she will encounter times when she wants to seek cosmetic help. The end of childbearing is one of those times, and dealing with the physical effects of hormonal changes is another. One thing is for sure: If you trust aesthetic medicine to turn back the clock on your appearance, you want to enjoy the benefits of a job well done.

Abdominoplasty is a body enhancement procedure more widely known as a tummy tuck. The goal of this surgery is to improve the structure of the abdominal wall and remove any excess skin or stubborn fat. A tummy tuck creates a tighter, smoother abdomen and a striking figure. But what about any scarring after surgery? Is it possible to improve that?

Surgical Expertise

Unfortunately, scarring is inevitable in any type of surgery. The best way to assure minimal scarring is to choose a surgeon who is not only experienced, but also certified. Board-certified plastic surgeons have received the highest levels of training, and must adhere to the most stringent ethical standards. They also must remain on the cutting edge of surgical techniques and technology to ensure the best results. Reducing the risk of scarring is vital in cosmetic surgery.

All our surgeons are board-certified. They offer the most advanced health care in aesthetic medicine and deliver fantastic results. Ensuring limited scarring after surgery is only a fraction of what sets them apart from most surgeons in Charlotte, Huntersville, and the entire East Coast.

Laser Treatments for Surgical Scarring

By focusing light therapy on scars to stimulate new skin cell production, our selection of laser treatments can enhance your tummy tuck results. Patients love them because they are quick, convenient, and highly effective. Although they will not wholly erase scars, they will reduce them enough to make them nearly invisible.

Your body will begin repairing the incision wound after surgery. The scars that remain are a permanent testament to the healing process. Laser treatments remove the outer, damaged layer of skin, smoothing it over to improve both tone and texture.

We use laser treatments to improve all forms of damaged skin. These include sun damage, acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin.
