Scars On My Gallbladder Not Removed
The gallbladder is a sac-like structure located under the right lobe of the liver. It is attached to the common bile duct via the cystic duct.

I want a surgical tattoo removal. Its on my belly not big around 2x3 inches? Would it leave scar even with cosmetic stiches?
Yes: We always heal with a scar the difference is a cosmetic closure makes the scar more difficult to notice. It is important for the surgeon to be sure they can close the skin once they cut out a 2x3 tattoo. It seems that they should be able to but expect to see a scar. ...Read more
I have keloid on my shoulder and i had surgically removed it but it came back. How i can completely remove it from my skin?Suggest smthng effective.
Keloid former!: Some people literally have the genes for keloid formation. However one issue that is clear. An infected or dirty wound is much more likely to form a keloid. You can try to have it removed again, but this time take a braod antimicrobial like augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate).

I have bunch of moles all over my face, they really bother, they're all small and flat, if i had laser mole removal, will i end up with scars on my face?
Possibly : It depends on what type of skin lesions these are. It is best to see a dermatologist. Some lesions will respond to topical creams or can be 'frozen'. These treatments typically leave less scar. However, some will require excision (cutting) and this will leave a small scar for each area. You can minimize scarring by always wearing sunscreen/avoiding excessive sunlight to your face. ...Read more
Forgot to ask my surgeon... Gallbladder removed by lap 13 days ago. When can I remove the tapes from incisions? Tape is really irritating my skin.
Anytime: At this point the steristrips (the little pieces of tape - sometimes called butterflies) can be removed. It is generally safe to take them off by 5-7 days after surgery. Steristrips are only designed to keep the skin edges together, the wound itself is kept together from falling apart by internal sutures. If the wound is red or draining fluid, see your surgeon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Sunscreen & Time: Glycol acid facial peels are usually very safe, yet sometimes they can burn the skin. The darker your skin, the more risk you have for scarring and pigmentation after a burn or trauma to your skin. The best thing you can do at this time is to stay out of the sun, wear a high SPF sunblock (SPF 50+) and give it time (several months, even up to one year). Strict sun avoidance and time is KEY! ...Read more

Fibrosis/keloid scar on my head. If I have it removed will my hair grow back through the scar? Will the scar be long and thin or round like keloid
No clear answer: After scar or keloid removal in the scalp it is unusual for the hair to grow back through the new scar. It is even possible that you could lose some hair around the new scar depending on how large the original keloid was. Keloids are somewhat prone to regrow so you could also need some cortisone shots around the new scar or even other treatments to help minimize the chance of recurrence. ...Read more
Liver: Liver will not over work itself after gallbladder surgery. Bile will flow freely into intestine. When you had your gallbladder it acted as a storage sack for bile in between meals. Now bile will flow directly into intestine from liver. You may have some diarrhea but that's about it. ...Read more
