TUMMY TUCK SCAR! HELP!!

Postby kohanamineko » Mon Dec 20, 2010 5:59 pm

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 :)

Hello kohanamineko,

I'd love to help you. Have you ever tried silicone sheeting? After a tummy tuck, it is normal to have certain areas of your scar raised but it is supposed to improve over time.

Silicone sheeting can help flatten scars quickly because they apply pressure to the scar. My favorite is the Scar Fx Silicone Scar Sheet - 1" x 22": http://bit.ly/gz8ZSP - I also like the belt from Scar Fx as it's made with a silicone gel that is attached to a flexible bandage and provides optimal compression to the scar area: http://bit.ly/f8xyUI

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.
