A lie by omission is still a lie, right? If you notice that something is missing in a portfolio of tummy tuck before and after photos, does it mean that a plastic surgeon is purposely hiding the ugly truth about tummy tuck scars? Placement is important when it comes to any kind of surgical scar. It’s an even bigger deal when you’re having plastic surgery to, you know, improve the way you look.
Don’t Jump to Conclusions
There could be a totally innocent reason for the lack of a visible scar in a plastic surgeon’s before and after photos. The pictures may be showing off how careful tummy tuck scar placement can make it so that an incision can be easily concealed under the teensiest of underthings.
If the people in the photos are wearing their undies and you can’t see any scar, maybe consider that a good thing.
Do Ask for Scar Pics, Though
Okay, so some no-scar pics are totally legit. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t ask to see some after shots that do show some scar. Any plastic surgeon you would actually want to workwith is going to be fine showing you pictures of past tummy tuck patients’ scars. In order to make a huge decision like whether you want to get plastic surgery, you need to know everything you’re getting into – scars and all.
And for Goodness Sake, Choose a Good Plastic Surgeon
