Even if it does not look perfect when you are nude, it will make a huge difference when you are clothed. My my tuck incision turned necrotic and I ended up with a giant triangular-shaped "crater" in my belly that took 5 months to heal, so I now have scars over my ribcage and under my breasts (I had a "reverse" tummy tuck... A true "T" shape) that look like burn scars (and some stretch marks as well) so I won't be wearing a bikini ever, but I love having a flat tummy for the first time in my adult life. Even with the scarring, and with the little mini spots of residual fat on my sides above my waist (I did not want to pay several hundred dollars more for lipo since I was completely self pay), it looks SO much better than when I had all that extra skin, and no one can see the imperfections when I am clothed.
Because of my complication, I won't ever encourage someone to have any plastic surgery, but I can say that, even with the complication, I am glad that I had it done.
