You may have wondered how a celebrity who has recently had a baby or has lost a substantial amount of weight seems to turn up with a flat abdomen just a short time later. Following a strict diet and exercise routine could be the reason for a celebrity’s quick slim down. While most people can accomplish a trim physique with this approach, celebrities usually have a few extra helping hands on their journey to a toned body. For instance, a chef who cooks healthy foods at every meal and a personal trainer to get them into great physical shape are luxuries that some may not have.

It is also plausible that the rapid turn-around in appearance most celebrities exhibit is caused by undergoing cosmetic surgery, most notably a tummy tuck.


What Is A Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck, known as abdominoplasty, removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen. This procedure also involves tightening connective tissue to accomplish a taught, firm stomach. There is a reason the tummy tuck is a popular procedure in Hollywood. It can quickly and efficiently create the effect of a flat abdomen. Diet and exercise can prove ineffective in eliminating loose and saggy skin after weight loss. Due to the stretched skin that is common in these instances, a tummy tuck surgery may be the more practical approach to achieving a tighter, slimmer appearance.


How Celebrities Hide Their Tummy Tuck Scars

The incision made during a tummy tuck should be so low that it is not visible most of the time; however, the scar may be visible with low-rise clothing or swimwear. Fortunately, there are specific methods for decreasing the appearance of scars, some of which are popular with celebrities. 

Skin-care routines can be an advantage in minimizing scarring. While these routines may not eliminate the scar, they can greatly reduce red and raised skin. Creams used to treat scars contain moisturizing ingredients to smooth the skin while improving tone and texture.

Lasers are another method of scar treatment used by celebrities. Over time, these laser sessions will help diminish blemishes–including redness and uneven texture. Laser scar treatment is a safe and effective way to hide unsightly scarring from a tummy tuck procedure.


Additional Tips To Minimize Surgery Scars

Skincare routines and lasers may not be available or suitable for everyone. Here are some additional methods to decrease the appearance of scars.


  • Moisturize, even if you aren’t using expensive skincare routines or creams. It will still provide some benefits.
  • Minimize your time in the sun. If you spend time outdoors, use a good SPF sunscreen to protect your skin.
  • Before your procedure, consult your surgeon with any concerns about scarring. They can help you decide what is best for you.



Choosing an expert cosmetic surgeon is the best way to minimize scarring with surgery. Northwest Face & Body has surgeons with the knowledge and experience to guide you through your aesthetic journey.
