Most of the time yes, but unless things have changed people such as Black Americans don't have a good success rate of plastic surgery and scar easily (usually a very light scar on the skin.) Many people with bad scars have them removed and the only way you can find out if you are a good candidate is to make an appointment with a very good plastic surgeon. Just don't pick anyone! Ask around or ask your doctor.

How do you get rid of scar tissue after tummy tuck?

There's not that much that can be done about the scar after a tummy tuck. Usually, before a cosmetic surgery procedure, the surgeon will discuss where the scar will be located. There should also be talk about whether the abdominoplasty scar will be vertical or horizontal. The surgeon may also talk about an endoscopic tummy tuck which leaves smaller scars. Much of the choice depends on how much fat and excess skin is being removed. The choice also depends on whether this is a full or mini tummy tuck surgery. That said, after the surgery, if you are not happy with the scar, there are some options. One is to wait - many scars will get better over time. You could also talk about this with your cosmetic surgeon. Perhaps a laser resurfacing procedure could improve the appearance of the skin surface.
