Plastic Surgery Scar Treatment After Thigh Lift? (photo)

I had thigh lift and tummy tuck and the scars in thigh lift in the groin are very dark. I would like to lighten their appearance only because when I bend the bathing suit slides and it does not look nice. Is there anything I can use to lighten the scars?
Concerned about scars from thigh lift
Scars usually get better (and lighter) with time. Within 1 year of surgery, I usually recommend my patients to massage the scar with scar cream and to avoid UV light. If after a year you still have hyper-pigmented scar, you can treat the area with hydroquinone based cream and or undergo laser treatment.
