After a tummy tuck, Will I have a skin folds on the abdomen when sitting down? Yes or No? Yes, you will! Those skin folds come in handy when you need to stand up as they stretch back and cover your abdominal area. If your abdomen looks firm and flat when standing up, your tummy tuck is successful. If the skin folds visible when sitting down or bothering you straighten your back or do some physical exercises.
