How bad is the scarring?


I'm 6'3 and weigh 300 pounds. I'm sure at this point if I'm to lose weight I'm going to need a tummy tuck. From the pictures I've seen there's an unsightly scar that looks like the person was cut in half. I have enough scars as is right now, with stretch marks and a scar going across my side from surgery I had done due to my kidney. I guess my question is between the size of my chest and stomach and so on, so, how bad will the scarring be?


The appearance of the scar when healing is complete (about 1 year or so from surgery) will depend on your ethnicity, amount of tension in the closure, etc.  You should consult with a plastic surgeon who routinely performs this type of surgery and he/she will be able to give you a better idea about the likely appearance of the scar.
