I had a circumcision when I was 18. I'm now 23 and I still have some visible scarring of stitches. I was wondering, will a silicone-based gel will help get rid of these scars?

Silicone gel for scars
Unfortunately, the answer is no. For scars, the best option is to treat them early on. Your scar is now 5 years old and are not likely to improve. Given the location, it is not advisable to try a resurfacing procedure. The best option may be to ask the urologist who performed the circumcision for some advice.
