Can't seem to find a straight answer from a doctor or anyone's success stories.
Does scar tissue *really* go away on its own most of the time? (I don't know if I'm calling that right, but basically whatever causes it to look worse after the surgery). Like will it go practically back to the appearance right after surgery?
Anything to be careful about for long term healing? E.g. does exercise prolong the scar tissue, lock it in, cause selling, etc?
Any surgeon who could give a straight "it should go back to how it was" or "it will not" would be very much appreciated and if anyone has any success or not quite success stories about this, please share your outcome as well. Just trying to get a clear answer.
A scar is the body's way of healing itself. You have had cuts before, each has healed with a scar. The trick is to try to minimize the scar as much as possible. This can be done by minimizing injury such as bruising and swelling after gynecomastia surgery
, surgical technique, skill of the surgeon, After Surgery Scar Care
, Compression Garments After Male Breast Reduction
, and other factors. Some doctors seem to need steroid injections in the scars for their patients. I find, with my techniques, it is quite rare that I need to inject my patients' scars after surgery.
Hope this helps,
