Thigh lift scars


Ouch, I have to say that my scars, especially when I sit cross-legged, are a bit on the painful side.  We have reached the point where they are tightening up before they let go again.  They are also pulling in a weird way and I'm not sure if that has to do with how I am healing or if it's just swelling that's makeing me feel tight.  I haven't had a follow up since before vacation-- I should make that call.  I'm curious if all the bike riding I have been doing is contributing to the change in the way the scars look (and how I am staying together) or if that's just what is supposed to happen.  I knew the scars weren't going to be pretty but it's a noticeable difference.  At least to me anyway, I've posted a picture after the jump.



For reference.  I'm sitting in a lounge chair on porch.  This is the T junction on my left leg and that's a Kaplan GRE book sitting on my lap.  I took this picture with the back-sided camera on my iPhone and am pretty impressed with the detail, including the hairs in my scar line. ;) You can also see how the vertical (on me, horizontal in the picture) scar is breaking/pulling.

Hmmm, obviously I know nothing about this, but I agree that you should make that call. I hope it's not overly painful...just saying.

i agree about seeing dr, just to make sure that you're healing ok :)

maybe you can try some lightening creme to help diminish the scars if they bother you? like mederna? or maybe even shea butter?
