I had surgery 10 months ago and I'm left with two 2-inch scars on both sides of my abdomen. I've tried vitamin E oil, Mederma, silicone scar patches and nothing has worked to diminish these scars. I'm considering laser removal, has anybody had it done? Or can anybody recommend something? THANK YOU!

Rather than laser treatment have you considered skin camouflage? I had a scar and was too scared to use lasers. I found a company which was called Visable Difference, I think . They colour match your skin and teach you how to use the camouflage cream yourself. There is no pain and no chance of even more scarring. Try Googling them.

My scar was a little pink/red when I was leaving the hospital, so they put me on anitbiotics just incase, pop in and see your gp and have them have a look at it. He/she might just put you on something if it looks a little infected.

i can recommend a scar cream that i use on psoriasis lesions and it helps fade them so i know it would work on regular scars. it is from a company called Make up artists choice. it is called rosehips and hibiscus scar cream. i have used many things on my lesions of psoriasis over the years and this really helps heal them so i am sure it would help with scars on your abdomen. i tried everything also, scar creams, lotions, i try to stay away from steroids as they thin the skin.

Hi kristymay_c,

I've been using ScarSil scar gel for a surgery scar and it seems to be helping.

Many methods are available to lessen the appearance of scarring, and the one used will depend on the severity of the scar. Non-surgical methods include injectable fillers for concave scars, light therapy, lasers, dermabrasion, and chemical peels. Deeper scars require surgery to remove.
