Thank you for your question and photographs.It is important to consult with your surgeon with any questions or concerns you may have. Scarring does take up to a year to resolve. There are various topical treatments and lasers that you could use to help minimize the scarring but again, i would consult with your surgeon to come up with the best option for you.
Good luck in your recovery!
