Update -11 months post Tummy Tuck
It's nearly been a year ago since I had my tummy...
1 year update with PS in December 2013
I did however see a dermatologist here (in Shanghai) to lighten the scar and found out some information that was new news to me. I was hoping to have laser scar surgery, but my dermatologist told me that cause of my skin tone being darker (Im hispanic) laser scar wouldnt benefit me and may make the area darker. So she prescribed me a new scar oil that I did apply for over a month and was able to see a slight difference especially only on the sides of my scar where they were the shade of the scar wasnt that bad to begin with. She suggested I can try a skin peel and Im thinking I might go back and take her up on that. Just wanted to post my new info. Although I am 14 months post-op I want to say that 90% of the feeling in my lower abdomen has come back. I can pinch my scar area and not feel a thing. Will post again hopefully if I decide to do the skin peel and more than likely will post back in July after seeing my PS for a small scar revision
My doc was great. I have noting negative to say about him. Wait times where a little lengthy at times but I never felt rushed during my visits. His office and staff made me feel comfortable and he does surgeries at his private office which I liked not having to go to the hospital. He's great.
