Cosmetic Surgery After an Appendectomy Recommended? Unhappy With The Swelling and Scarring? (photo)
Hi, I had an emergency appendectomy 3 months ago. The scar is 4 inches and the area above it, looks swollen. It feels like there is fluid or fatty tissue in there. It basically looks like there is a lump under the skin. My surgeon said it would 6 months for the muscles to grow back together...if/when this happens will my stomach be flat again? I'm a thin guy (waist size is 29/30 so this lump above the scar is really noticeable. Is another surgery the only way to fix it?
