When did your scars fade?

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies,

I'm now just over 4 months post op and still have red scars. They seem to be fading but only minimally. I used the silicone tape for the first 2 months as well but they are still very visible. Just wondering how long it took before your scars disappeared - or do they never disappear completely??

There's a process your body goes through as you heal.  Between 3 & 4 months your scars will appear quite red as vascularisation is at its peak so you'll have heaps of capillaries and blood flow to the area. Between now and your 12 month mark that reverses and your scars lose colour.  You can speed the fading up by continuing on using your silicone which works to speed up the process.
