Thank you for your question and photographs.I recommend that my patients wait at least a year before considering a scar revision. You scars are still healing and changing within the first 12 months. After this period, laser treatments and keloid injections can be beneficial in reducing the appearance of the scars further. I would continue to use scar creams/gels and refrain from direct sunlight exposure or tanning beds.
Best of luck in your recovery!
