Scar Removal: Q&AAsk a Question
Seven Inch Abdominal Surgical Scar - Six Months Post-surgery. Options? (photo)
I am an extremely fortunate individual- the fine surgeons at Mayo saved my life last year. I do have a large (7"+) vertical abdominal scar. It is red and slightly raised and is straight. I am of slight build but had two kilos of tissue removed during surgery so my scar is not entirely flat. I'm looking to improve its appearance. Thank you for your advice!
