Will the scar from the alarplasty be gone once I apply scar cream? (Photo)

Scar cream after alarplasty

Thank you for the question and the photo. It is rather difficult to fully assess your situation without an in-person examination. Furthermore, in order to answer your question, one would have to know how long ago you had your alarplasty done. It is not uncommon to observe some scarring and swelling shortly after the procedure. Most likely, your scar will heal over time without the need for a scar cream or some other form of wound care. However, it would be best to visit a board-certified plastic surgeon and have a full evaluation for your concern. Best of luck! Dr. Michael Omidi.

Scar from Alarplasty

Hi Baby888,
While there is no guarantee that scar gel will remove scars anywhere in the body, it shouldn't hurt to try.
