Reducing Scars Prevent, reduce, or minimize scars with these tips from the skin care pros. (Med MD.)
Fortunately, it’s not difficult to prevent some scars and reduce others. WebMD went to practicing dermatologists for their quick tips on how to take care of minor cuts and scrapes. Follow their advice and you may have a tale to tell about your mishap -- but without the scar to prove it.
The Best Scar Prevention: Good Wound Care
Whether you're concerned about scarring from a cut, scrape, stitches, or even a small surgical wound or acne, the best way to prevent an unsightly scar or reduce the cosmetic appearance of it is to do a good job caring for the wound. Use these three steps:
Clean out a fresh cut or scrape . Soothe and clean the wound with cool water. Then remove any pebbles or splinters with alcohol-sterilized tweezers. Gently wash around the wound with soap and a washcloth. Irritants such as harsh soap, hydrogen peroxide, iodine, and alcohol aren't good for cleaning minor wounds. In fact, these substances can actually delay healing.
Keep it covered. Covering your cut or scrape helps it heal by barring bacteria, dirt, and other irritants. It also helps keep the wound moist for the first few days, which speeds healing. You can use an antibiotic cream or ointment to help keep your wound clean and moist. Keeping the wound covered and moist helps reduce the appearance of scars.
Don't pick at scabs. Right after you get a cut or scrape, or even pick a pimple, your body starts healing the wound. White blood cells attack infection-causing bacteria. Red blood cells, fibrin, and platelets create a clot over your wound. And in no time, a scab forms. If you pick off the scab, you may not only reopen the wound and introduce bacteria, you could also create a larger scar.
Why Could a Scar Still Form?
Even if you care for a wound perfectly, you may still end up with a scar. That's because some people are just more prone to scarring and some places on the body are just more prone to scars. A wound doesn't need to be deep or severe to leave a scar.
"Scars tend to develop more frequently in areas of skin that are under tension or pull," says Valerie D. Callender, MD, a dermatologist in Maryland. For example, your chest, shoulders and back are common places for scars to form. To prevent scars in these areas, avoid upper body exercise and lifting heavy objects while your wound heals.
When scars do form, they are usually pale and flat, although some can be raised. Called hypertrophic or keloid scars, these occur when the body produces too much collagen.
Sunscreen. Sun protection is vital for minimizing a scar and preventing hyperpigmentation, says California dermatologist Sonia Badreshia-Bansal, MD. She recommends a sunscreen with zinc or titanium dioxide -- blocking agents protect against UVA and UVB rays. Look for a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher. Badreshia-Bansal also suggests massaging around a wound to help prevent the development of thick scars.
Fancy creams. Skip pricey creams, says Elizabeth Tanzi, MD, a dermatologist in Washington, D.C. You'll find many creams that claim help healing because they contain vitamin E or cocoa butter, but there's no hard evidence that they work. To keep a scab moist -- and hopefully free from itch -- dab on a little petroleum jelly instead, Tanzi says.
Silicon gel sheeting. Putting a sheet of silicon gel on a scar every day may help it fade or keep it from getting worse. The sheeting is available at pharmacies or from dermatologists. Florida dermatologist Andrea Cambio, MD, says gel sheeting should be used for at least three months for best results.
Concealer. This can be a good temporary way to make a scar go undercover. Pick a shade that is most effective with the color of your scar. "If the scar is red or pink, try a concealer with a green undertone,” Cambio says. “If the scar is brown, try a concealer with a yellow undertone. If the scar is lighter that your normal skin, pick a concealer that matches your skin tone." Cambio also suggests using a concealer that is waterproof.
Bleaching creams. These may help fade some dark scars, also called hyperpigmentation. Some hyperpigmentation is permanent, however. Ask your dermatologist for suggestions.

How to Increase Hemoglobin?
Unless you have an underlying disease, there are several ways to increase your hemoglobin count.
1. Foods to Increase Hemoglobin
If you have low hemoglobin, one of the easiest ways to increase your level is to make sure your diet includes enough iron. It is recommended that women get 8 mgs of iron each day; men should get 10 mgs.
Iron-rich Foods. If you eat meat, beef, liver, and shrimp are great iron-rich foods. If you are a vegetarian, you will have to get your iron from sources that are not as readily absorbable. Some of these sources are spinach, tofu, asparagus, pineapple, dried fruits and iron-enriched breads and grains. If you are not allergic, add some almonds and other nuts to your diet for a quick boost in iron.
Vitamin C-rich Foods. Vitamin C helps your body to absorb the iron you eat. You can get vitamin C from many fruits and vegetables including peppers, mangoes, oranges, strawberries, cabbage, broccoli, grapefruit, tangerines, tomatoes, and spinach.
Folic Acid-rich Foods. Folic acid is one of the B vitamins that are essential in producing red blood cells. Folic acid is found in sprouts, seeds, peanuts, broccoli, wheat germ, and other nuts. Be sure to add more folic acid to your diet if you are taking a lot of Vitamin C since Vitamin C causes your body to excrete folic acid.
Whole Grains. Many whole grains in the form of breads, cereals and pastas are enriched with iron. These iron-enriched foods can provide a good source of iron to increase your hemoglobin. Be sure to read the label to know how much iron is in your food.
2. Supplements to Increase Hemoglobin
Your healthcare provider may want you to take prescription or over-the-counter supplements to increase your hemoglobin level. Some of these supplements may include iron (20-25 mg per day), vitamin B6 (50-100 mg per day), vitamin B12 (500-1000 mg per day), vitamin C (1000 mg per day) and folic acid (400 mcg per day). The iron helps in the synthesis of the hematin. The vitamins and folic acid are critical for the production of the red blood cells that carry the hemoglobin.
3. Herbs to Increase Hemoglobin
Herbs can be very useful when trying to increase your hemoglobin level. Specifically, nettle leaf, dong quai, and withania may be helpful. Nettle leaf contains iron, the B vitamins, vitamin C and other vitamins that can help increase hemoglobin. Dong quai and withania have been used for centuries to increase red blood cells and to make the hemoglobin in the cells healthier. As with any over-the-counter supplement or herb, be sure to check with your healthcare provider to ensure that the herbs do not interact with other medications you may be taking.
CHANGED MY MIND..... AGAIN
Hoping to return to see and get a date to see Dr. Salamas again. Hoping to get a date very very soon.
Like yesterday soon. So if any one wants to sell there spot and its for this month please in box me.
Loving my husband so much!!! god thank you for him....
But really want to thank my husband for everything he has done for me, i have put him through a roll a coster ride, and i know thats just a part of a relationships up and downs. I have burned his ears night and day, But its funny because he will call me from work and he tells me " just sotted a girl and i know she had her ass done" lol " i don't want want yours to look fake" and he reads reviews with me and points out girls on RS who has had there's done and tells me " see thats nice i want yours like that'!
He makes sure i have what i need for this Surgery and reassures me that he will be there for me every step of the way. So i just want you girls to know that there are GREAT men out there and god has provided me with my personal ANGEL.
So Papi i want to tell you how much i appreciate you and grateful for a friend and a husband like you. Thank you :)
And to my sister on RS Thank you for all the answers to my questions. MUAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
It all began with a surprising phone call from Dr. Salama office by Cynthia.........
Monday July 28th....... Pre-Opt appointment at Dr Salama office to meet Nomi to consult with me what will take place after surgery. After leaving the office i was very nervous and I knew now that the surgery was about to happen. Thanks to my husband for keeping me positive and clear mind.
Day of Surgery July 29th......
Recovery......1hr passed and my husband started feeding me soup. I then started to wake up. After eating He then got me up to walk to gain energy. The walking made it a big difference for me. For those girls getting the BBL try to get out of bed and walk and drink lots of water. To be honest I didn't feel nausea or pain except for the small left incision in my tummy area. It felt like pouring rubbing alcohol into a raw cut. Every 30min to a Hr I got up to walk, drink water/Gatorade and and to also switch position to sleep as to relieve the discomfort on my back. Thank God for my Husband the nurse to push me to eat and get up because I believe if I was to stay in bed I would've made it worst on myself during day 1.
Day 1was very messy my garment was bloody, I couldn't shower, I urine on my self a few times before fully up and to make things worst my PERIOD came down... SMH!!!!
Day 2 July 30th Post-Op pics and Massage...OMG!!!!!!!!!
Week 2 feeling better at CrownPlaza with Internet Access Yay!!!!!
For those women preparing for surgery, Please buy the EZ travel Urinal. It really helps! Buy LOTS of chucks and wipes.... You will make use of it. Like I said before its very messy day 1.
Second massage tomorrow Aug 4th... Not looking forward.

After many months of research I came across Dr. Salama and love his results with women on Realself. At my very first encounter at EPS I can only say great things about the entire staff that work there from Cynthia, Nomi, Evelyn,Karen, Nancy,etc and the best massage therapist for me Ceila. They are all very warm and helpful. Dr Salama himself explained the best after care procedures to follow after surgery to achieve best results. He took his time and answered all my questions. I'm so happy I made the right choice choosing the BUTT GOD himself Dr Salama as my surgeon. I have no regrets whats so ever. I love the results and I now have curves. It was well worth the money.
