Embarrassed by scars

Postby Quasimodo » Fri Feb 17, 2012 11:57 am

Hello Everyone:

I have a question. I felt like I was disfigured by my first surgeon. It's taken me two years and seeing another surgeon to reverse what was done from the first surgeon.

One thing I can't change is the huge scar from my abdominalplasty from the first surgeon. I was really hoping time would make the cut scar less noticable, but I can't undress in front of my husband because I feel as if he's staring at the scar on my midsection.

I've been dying for a massage, but I can't seem to get past the scar across my stomach. I've tried scar gel, microneedling, regular application of expensive creams and nothing is working. I can't go to the beach for fear of people seeing the scar.

How can I overcome this fear? Is it normal for people to feel this way? I had the surgery in 2008 and it's still very much there and you can see it.

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love for you to share your experience with me. I'm almost paralyzed by this alien mar across my stomach.

Thank you,

Quasi

These scars are also from the same surgeon who is being sued currently and who sent me another patient's pictures and the one who is under my post of "permanent swelling."

I can very well understand from my own dark days 4 years back. Acne Scars can be real messy when it comes to your facial look and other people's stark remarks. Though the dark marks of the scars did fade a little I wasted a little amount of time on other scar creams until my mom referred the Invicible Scar Treatment Cream. I have also used Mederma in the past but believe me if you are real serious you should try this cream once. I also referred it for my daughter's acne scars. Is working well.

I'm not sure if you ladies have heard of a derma-roller but that in conjunction with Tamanu Oil, vitamin E oil, and exfoliating, and sugar scrubs and coco-butter moisturizers have really made a huge difference in my stretch marks and this huge scar I had right above my butt from bumping into the iron as a child lol. Also there is a oil called Japanese Cameillia Kissi(not sure if its spelled right) in pure form it also works wonders on scars.

Thanks for the info!

I wished I had known about the Japanese Cameillia Kissi, Curve! I was in Japan in September and I could have picked up a bottle.

The Japanese are so nice and they don't rip anyone off. It's pricey, but you get exactly what you pay for. No one likes to waste their money there.

Hey, the Yen is coming down... maybe I can go again sooner rather than later, hmm.... thinking!

In the mean time, I'll look for the Japanese Cameillia Kissi online. I see there are knock-offs which aren't the real deal. Gotta be careful.

Thank you for the ideas!

Invicible scars , as stated in previous message, works pretty well. I love it more because it is hypoallergenic. You can try it without being cautious as it won't harm you. But i've never been disappointed. I used it for my facial scars and now i use it as a moisturizer. It's pretty amazing

1.0 out of 5 stars fancy packaging but disappointing, June 16, 2013
By toelone (Maryland) - See all my reviews
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Invicible Scars - Dr. C's 17% Vitamin-C-Complex (Misc.)
The product might be good, although I have been disappointed with it. The dispenser is heavy for what could just be a tube or bottle of the cream. The cream itself seems nice, but I did not notice any difference in two weeks of using it exactly as directed. However, I did run out of the cream after two weeks. Either that or the fancy dispenser stopped working, but I am almost positive I just used up all of the product. That's very little product especially at this price. I have other scar creams that I have tried that appear to work better (even in the same relatively short period of time) and that last longer, even when the tube is very small. I would definitely not recommend this, and I certainly won't be buing it again.

1.0 out of 5 stars This does not work!, January 22, 2013
By Joy - See all my reviews
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Invicible Scars - Dr. C's 17% Vitamin-C-Complex (Misc.)
I purchased Invicible Scars to treat acne scars/ small surgery scars (1/4 of an inch long) and the small dark spots on my face. I used as directed and finished the whole container. Nothing changed. It was a complete waste of money. I saw no improvement whatsoever. My dark spots are still there. My other scars did not change and did not even lighten the slightest bit. I thought this product was promising because of all the great reviews and the before and after pictures. I do not recommend this product and I am still on the search for a great scar cream that really works.

1.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating, February 14, 2013
By Miriam Naomi - See all my reviews
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Invicible Scars - Dr. C's 17% Vitamin-C-Complex (Misc.)
First of all, excuse me for my English because I'm Brazilian. I had a car accident and had to do a surgery which left a very large hypertrophic scar. I went to a plastic surgeon specialize in scars and he told me to use Kelo Cote and do others things. While not believing that Invicible Scars would work, I decided to try because of the others reviews. The cream has an easy absorption and the smell is almost imperceptible. However, after 3 days of use, the dispenser stopped working. So I could not even prove the efficiency of the product. I live in Rio de Janeiro, so nothing I can do but get frustrated with the quality of the packaging.

I think it is really necessary to look for the treatment according to your condition. I know this lady who used a cream which was not recommended for her condition and after using it, she posted reviews everywhere that so and so treatment is a waste and shouldn't be tried at all. Therefore, i don't usually go with the reviews. I myself have used invicible and i don't see any reason to not try it.
