"I am about a month and a half out and I love my stomach. I look like a teen again, lol. Dr. Rahban did such a great job! My scar is very thin and I'm sure in a couple months I won't even have one." Liz N.
Debbie discusses her experience with Dr. Rady Rahban after undergoing plastic surgery for a Tummy Tuck procedure.
Avoiding disappointing tummy tuck results:
Tummy tuck scars form when the incision has too much tension at the edge during healing. Dr.Rahban uses a progressive tension suturing technique, meticulously closing multiple layers from the inside out, and using many sutures to ensure both side of the wound are under minimal tension. This highly compulsive technique avoids the formation of unsightly tummy tuck scars. Los Angeles residents regularly consult Dr. Rahban concerning scar repair treatment due to his reputation for creating thin scars that are virtually invisible once fully healed.
Tummy tuck scars generally take a year to fully resolve. This allows the body to cycle through the healing process. While this is ongoing, the scar will get better, worsen and finally settle. After this time, if the scar is still unsatisfactory, it will need to be repaired.
Belly button repair:
Repairing a belly button scar is another concern for many women. During a tummy tuck the belly button must be repositioned and reattached. A well done tummy tuck creates a navel with a natural “inverted U” shape that is contoured correctly. The “hole on a board” navel can be repaired so that it is possible to wear a bikini without embarrassment. Tummy tuck scar treatment in Dr. Rahban’s Beverly Hills office often includes repairing misplacement or scarring of the belly button.

Methods of tummy tuck scar treatment
Tummy tuck scars are formed when pressure or tension is placed on the incision while it is healing. Pressure causes the scar to widen to such a degree that wearing low cut jeans or bikini bottoms isn’t possible without showing part of the scar.
While other surgeons prescribe various creams to minimize scarring, it is Dr. Rahban’s opinion that these are ineffectual. For this reason, he takes the time during closure in the OR to ensure the healing process is optimal.
If you have a pre-existing scar from previous treatment, surgical scar revision is necessary for scars that are wide, discolored, raised or recessed. Dr. Rahban is known for his exquisite technique in closing incisions and for this is known for providing the best tummy tuck scar treatment available in Los Angeles. Recovery from scar revision is much less of a time commitment as the incision involves less area.
Very often a combination of scar revision and other skin smoothing treatments such as microdermabrasion or other topical solutions is used to obtain the best result.
Preventing the need for tummy tuck scar treatment
The best insurance that a tummy tuck scar will heal very well is to meticulously follow post operative instructions. Incisions must remain tension and pressure free during the early weeks of healing.
To aid in this requirement, compression garments may be recommended as well as the use of silicone sheets. Both of these methods stabilize the incision and keep tension and pressure well distributed.
If you are unhappy with your tummy tuck scar, treatment is available to minimize the scar or repair a tell tale belly button repositioning.

What Our Patients Say: Liz N.
"I went to Dr. Rahban for a tummy tuck, number one because I had a huge tattoo on my lower abdomen and didn't want to go through laser removal, and since I had just had my baby I said why not get a tummy tuck?
I did consult with another doctor beforehand and she could not even compare to Dr. Rahban. She was more all about the money and didn't care about me and my concerns. When I saw Dr. Rahban all he cared about was me and my concerns. He didn't push any treatment. He said I needed to make sure this was something I wanted to do, and he also told me not to worry about the tattoo because he would make sure all of it was gone.
I made my decision and went through with it and all I can say is it was the best decision I have made.
