dealing with scars after lipoma removal

Post by 1% » Fri Dec 09, 2011 4:04 am

i had 10 + lipomas surgically removed and all of them left scars. Most of them are raised and red in color. The bigger ones are ~ 3cm long and ~ 0.5cm wide. It's been 3 years and the scars doesn't seem to fade. I don't quite trust the scar lotions and the vitanmin E thing. So here are my questions:
1.Is there any product out there that can hide the scars?
2. Is there anything you can do at a cosmetic clinic to get rid of the scars?

You could try derma rolling. It is very effective, it stimulates the collagen growth. Google it. Takes about a few months to get it disappear. Ive read in other forums that people have used it successfully for scars including ice pick acne scars, stretch marks etc.

Oh btw, did your lipoma ever grow back in the same spot, or anywhere else after surgery over time?

it doesn't appear to grow back in the same spot, but they more and more of them pop up over time. I doubt this has anything to do with the surgery.

Amazon.com WidgetsHallo members

after 35 operations, where you could see the scar from the last operation the scars was getting longer and longer. Very good results came from Pure Emu-Oil. Massage the oil over the scars several times per day and you will see that the skin is generating from inside

After you have had an operation you want to keep the the scar as steady as possible for at least a couple of weeks. This means you should cover it with a bandage but you should also allow the scar to "breath" as much as possible.

You should also avoid exercising and overall moving as long as possible. This can of course be tricky. The older you are the slower the scars usually heal, unfortunally.

After my last surgery I tried to remain very still and avoid stretching my scars for a long time but still some of them expanded :( It looks like it's inevitable in some areas which are prone to stretching.

And as a general rule the thicker the skin the more visible the scar will be. From the neck up the skin is quite this and the scars will usually faint easily but e.g. thighs, chest and stomach have thick skin and they are also more mobile which is why these areas often have more distinguishable scarring.

For some reason I have a scar in front of my left thigh that hasn't faded eventhough I have applied different gels to it. It is the same age as the one in my right thigh which is located at the side of my thigh. This scar is almost invisible? Why they differ I'm puzzled?

There are a multitude of different kinds of gels and lotions to help minimize the scars. I've used Mederma and Emu oil.

But if you have bigger scars you might want to check out the Derma Roller with nano needles that stimulate the skin and other skin care products like the ScarAway Silicone. There are some examples of products in here.

The best thing to cure scars is to cure scars from inside.

I am on low carb high fat diet for 12 years, still alive and I could say that's why I am alive. My scare after appendices in 1963 was about 15 x 2 cm and started to cure properly 10 years ago
and now it is hardly visible.
