Can I Fade My Scars?
Your tummy tuck scar will generally begin to lighten and fade on its own within several months. It can take up to one year or more for your scar to lighten completely. Dr. Lawton will provide you with a scar management plan that will minimize scarring as much as possible. The best way to keep scars as small as possible is to avoid stretching, pulling, and abrasion throughout the recovery process.
In many cases, your scar may be only noticeable to you after a certain amount of time. Dr. Lawton will walk you through every aspect of your procedure during your consultation phase. She makes herself available to answer any questions or concerns you may have so you can make an informed decision about what’s right for you.
If there’s anyone contemplating a tummy tuck & breast lift with an augmentation, I highly recommend Dr. Lawton! I brought my aunt to her after seeing my friends incredible results. My aunt lost over 100lbs & had lost all the volume on her breasts & had tons of loose skin on her tummy. I went with my aunt, who only speaks spanish, to her initial consult. She wanted to get her breasts done first, but after Dr. Lawton & Erin educated us & explained the process of doing both tummy & breasts at the same time, she booked the whole makeover! She is almost 3 months post op & looks and feels amazing! I wasn’t able to make all her appointments, but Erin was sweet enough to call me during the visit so I could translate. I can’t say enough about how amazing Erin is! She’s the best patient liaison ever! We had so many questions, more than the average person, I’m sure, and Erin was always happy to help. Thank you Lawton team for making my auntie so beautiful!
