Tummy Tuck Belly Buttom Scar Revision; is there a way to fix this? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 2
Plato's Scar serum and Melarase PM to a tummy tuck keloid
Your scar may continue to grow. I would apply Plato's Scar Serum and Melarase PM followed by IIT and fractional lasers.
Hello and thank you for your question. Based on your
photograph, this can be revised with an inverted V flap. But you could also try steroid injections prior to that, but this has a risk of hypopigmentation in your skin tone. Speak with your surgeon and ask his/her advice.
Best wishes and good luck.
