How should I relieve an ugly scar on my neck ?

It will improve: Scars are permanent but almost all fade with time. Protect the scars from sunlight while there is any pink left in them; they will burn easily and, if tanned, may be tanned permanently. I would not expect the scar to assume its final form for 12-18 months. The younger you are, the longer it will take. Do not rush into scar revision. See a surgeon certified by the am. Bd. Of plas.

I had stitches on my chin. How can I keep from getting an ugly scar?

Therefore, surgical removal of the tumor should restore the breast to its 'normal' state. As far as the scar goes, the scar can usually be "hidden" around the areolar edge or below the breast. Be sure to ask your surgeon! ...Read more
