It has been over a year since my Tumy Tuck. I have a scar from hip to hip that is still brown. In the middle of the scar is scar tissue where during the healing process at the beginning a staple was stuck and I had kind of a hole forming. Now that part is raised in my scar. I was going to get a tattoo over the scar but the shop denied doing it. So now I'm thinking about scar revision. What do you guys think? Please give me some advice and what you did for your scarring. Thank you
All our silicone sheets are medically proven in helping to reduce the appearance, size, height, thickness, and color of scars but Scar Fx is the only brand that lasts for 3 months...and the optimal wearing time for a silicone sheet is 24 hours per day for a period of 8-12 weeks.
I've looked at your pictures to see your scar but I am not sure they are recent. It looks like you haven't uploaded recent pics of your scars- am I correct?
I couldn't view the pic without a password but I bet it is nothing like mine. I had a TT and Lipo and healing and scarring was minimal and looked great. Revision 8 months later and it turned out awful. 6 mnths now post op and I still have tenderness, red/purple scar hip to hip that is raised and about 3 inches wide. I so want to find out what I can do to get rid of it or reduce it.
