I've been suffering with Graves disease for a year now, I want to get rhinoplasty and a lip lift done, however I am worried that the wounds will not heal for me and I will end up getting nasty scars. Usually for me whenever I get a small cut my body would take a longer time to heal and most of the time it would turn into a scar
