Depending upon the nature of each case, this procedure can require up to two weeks for recovery. When scar removal also includes procedures involved in a mommy makeover or tummy tuck, the recovery period will most likely take longer. When a simple removal of the scar is performed, recovery takes less time—maybe a week or 10 days. Patients will begin to see improvement immediately after surgery. Any redness associated with scarring will continue to heal and fade, with final results appearing anywhere from six weeks up to three months.
