Hey, guys I hope it’s not too much to ask, but my surgery is in two days and as an actor I am sorta nervous of the long term ramifications of this scar. Would it be possible for a couple people with a scar over a year old to post? I don’t mind if it’s even like 10 years old. Just anything over 1 year.
Haven’t got a photo to post I’m afraid, but generally the surgeons make the incision in a neck crease so they’re not visible at all. Mine were behind my ear so can’t be seen, but it does depend on the surgeon’s technique as to where they operate, & whether there’s calcified ligaments which need removing too as then the incision can be lower.
Here’s SewMomma’s pic from another thread:
I hope that your surgery goes well- will be thinking of you & praying for you
Why are you asking about a 1 year old scar just curious. I can send a picture of mine from July 2021 if that helps
It blends in really well.
And I’m almost 60
That’d be great! I was asking about 1-year surgeries because I wanted to know what it’ll look like after a year as that is when I will be finishing college and going to LA to audition for films and tv shows. However, I would love to see a 6-month scar if you are willing to share! Thank you.
Can’t see it at all!
The first one is 2 weeks post op the second is today. I had a reaction to the sutures initially and worked to get the swelling and reaction down. I went to physical therapy and they massaged it starting 3 weeks post op. I did about 6 visits with them then I continued the massage and also applied vitamin E oil and silicone scar gel alternating and massaged that also. It took a while but today it’s flat much improved. I continue to apply the above daily. Most people don’t react to the sutures like me. Make sure he makes the incision in a skin fold and uses a sub cue sutures so there are no sutures visible above the skin to remove.
Looks really good now!
Really great difference, rtdevine! Glad you’ve healed so well!
Nice small incision, beachlady! I bet it’s pretty invisible when you aren’t taking a pic of it!
