A reputable Baltimore tummy tuck surgeon like Dr. Jeffrey Schreiber of the Baltimore Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery Center can perform a surgery with minimal scarring. After the procedure, he will provide you with specific instructions to help the wound heal properly and quickly. Heeding advice on lifting (delay it) and smoking (avoid it) for a few weeks would promote better healing.
Stay out of the sun, or protect yourself from its light.
Exposure to the sun can make the scar appear redder or darker. To avoid this, apply protective dressings or garments as instructed by the surgeon. Also, wear sunscreen for at least a year after surgery.
