Yes it will heal iv had to pull out the dissolvabel stapels and plastic stitching out of several spots just to get it to close :/

I'm so glad I found your review. I'm also a patient of Dr. Pousti and my scar has several spots like yours did. I will be 5 weeks post op on Friday and it's nice to see that it is normal and that it will eventually heal!

No lol did not change size of my belly button. ... the darkness from scabs made it look smaller and the pinkness of the scaring makes it look large... its wierd... im getting used to it... my incision just finally closed I have 2 small spots that are clossing after pulling out plastic stitching that was irritating it... iv had some problems with that

Hey sweetie, u loom amazing! I was looking at your pics and I was wondering did you change the size of your belly button?. Because in some pics it looks small and then it looks larger

You look beautiful!! I bet your scar will fade and you will hardly notice it!! Looks like it is healing alot better now! I get my tape off next Tuesday-but some of it already started peeling off and in one spot it is a bit open and leaking....I'm anxious to get the tape off to see-but I'm also scared as I don't know whats underneath! HOWEVER, I am beginning to fall in love with my tummy-so the scar will be what it will be!! Did your surgeon tell you to massage your scar at all so it doesn't stick to underlying tissue?? I am told to do this at week 3-but my scar hurts in places and I'm scared that I'm doing more harm than good! :)

Ya he told me to only rub the parts that are 100% heald dont rub the open or unheald spots... but it is definitely a wierd feeling and long healing process

if I'd see you out on the beach I'd never guess that you are a mom to 5 children!!! You seriously look amazing. The open wound thing is quite scary, and with my luck it will happen to me...

Hey! I just read your posts!! You look great, but I'm sooo sorry that you are having issues with your scar healing. I keep hearing that this eating process takes a long time...take it easy and hang in there!!! Hugs hugs hugs!

Thank you so much... iv felt like iv been talking to my self on hear :( your the first to respond on my profile :) who's your Dr.? I wish you the best of luck tomorrow.. Do you have a medial bucket like toilet that can sit over your toilet? That for me was a life safer! You don't realize how low your toilet is until you're trying to sit way down there
