Is it normal for fat to settle on top of a tummy tuck scar 13 years after the surgery?
Yes, that can happen over time. This can easily be fixed with liposuction in the office.

Yes, fat can appear over a tummy tuck scar. This commonly happens with C-Section patients as well. Liposuction may fix the excess fat.

Fat can reaccumulate in the abdomen after a tummy tuck. However, this is easily removed with in-office liposuction.
