Can you cover a mommy makeover scar with a tattoo?

Adding a tattoo to cover a mommy makeover depends on the patient’s preferences, meaning if you want to hide the scar, you can have a tattoo to achieve your aesthetic goals. 

However, experts recommend doing your research before considering this option to avoid complications. The primary purpose of getting a tattoo is the camouflage the scar, but some studies show that scarred tissues after a mommy makeover do not hold the ink color and may affect the skin’s health

Tattoos can make scarred tissues fragile or thicken them, causing severe infections. The good news is that scars fade over time, meaning you should avoid worrying about the more visible scar for a few years. Although the ultimate choice is yours, experts suggest one must not get a tattoo to cover the scar tissues. 

Does it hurt to get a tattoo over a scar?

Women get tattoos to cover a scar after mommy maker for many reasons. For example, some women want to improve their body appearance. That’s why they tend to undergo the tattooing procedure. Others feel more comfortable by hiding scars under tattoos. 

Remember that everyone’s body is different, meaning each individual’s tissues will respond differently to tattoos after a mommy makeover. Some women experience severe discomfort and pain when covering scar tissues with tattoos. Others may have high-level pain tolerance and may not get severely affected. 

The general rule of thumb is that scar tissues can cause severe inflammation, swelling, pain, and increase the risk of infection after getting tattoos. Likewise, it can cause nerve compression or damage, leading to chronic complications. 

Does mommy makeover leave scars?

The answer is, “Yes,” mommy makeover can leave scars. However, the intensity of scars depends on how the procedure was performed. It also depends on what measures were taken to reduce the risk of complications. 

You can easily hide breast lift scars that result from small incisions on the top of the breast. For example, you can cover the scar tissue with a bra or swimsuit. In addition, scar tissues fade away significantly over time. 

However, it won’t fade away with time if the scar is permanent. Studies show that it takes 1-2 years to notice the scar barely. The majority of patients who undergo breast lift procedures are happy with their aesthetic appearance after a few years. 

Moreover, a tummy tuck is an integral part of the mommy makeover procedure that produces incredible results. However, one complication associated with a tummy tuck is leaving larger scar tissue. 

No matter how experienced and skilled the health provider is, a large incision will leave a scar. Therefore, it is wise to discuss this matter with your health provider before undergoing the procedure. 

Can you tattoo breast lift scars?

Many women undergo tattooing to disguise or camouflage the incision lines and scars. Although tattoos can conceal scars resulting from a breast lift, they can cause problems, especially if you fail to follow the post-operative guideline and meet the rehabilitation requirements. 

Therefore, we suggest completing the recovery, and once the healing period ends, you can consider a tattoo to cover your breast life scars. Again, this requires careful planning preparation because getting a tattoo can put pressure on your skin and increase the risk of infections. 

Final Words 

Mommy makeover is a sophisticated procedure that combines numerous aesthetic techniques to help make your skin/body appear healthy and youthful. However, the process involves making incisions that can result in the appearance of scars. 

Therefore, we recommend choosing a qualified and board-certified plastic surgeon to ensure the incisions are as tiny as possible. That way, you can easily hide the scars with clothes, bras, swimsuits, bikinis, etc. Instead of getting a tattoo, we suggest more natural remedies, such as a healthy diet and exercise, to speed up the fading process.
