Long stomach scar healed starting to turn pink. First layer of skin coming off.

What do I do if I have a stomach scar from 25 years ago and its starting to look weird? I was a preemie and have a scar across my stomach. Its healed but since I've gained a little extra weight and it seems around the scar is rubbing against each other.It's pink and i think the first layer of skin is starting to come off. How can I fix it? I don't want it to break open or something. Please help.

Abdominal scar revision

I would recommend revision of your abdominal scar with layered closure followed by our Hidef Scar Revision Protocol which may include lasers, IIT, and scar therapy.

I suggest posting photos for further assessment and treatment advice. An in person consultation is best for evaluation of the scar. Always see a board certified dermatologist. Best, Dr. Emer
