if you're having it done laprascopically, those scars should be barely visible after awhile, scar cream or not. I never used it on my RNY scars and you can barely tell they're there. I *did* use it on my plastic surgery scars, though, as those are extensive.

I use Bio-Oil and at six months post-op my scars are very faded

I think genetics plays a big part of it too...years ago when I had a breast reduction my surgeon told me I have hyper-pigmentation and that I will likely have scars that won't fade to my liking. He was right. Its been over 15 years and the scars are still visible...a lot better than before, but it took a while (1-2 years) to get to an acceptable level for me.

Its been almost 8 months since my sleeve and my scars from that are still dark and raised. I knew it would be this way and I'm good with it.

(Now that I'm getting plastics at the end of the year, I will probably end up looking like a verifiable Frankenstein naked. Mr. and the Kid suggest I get some tattoos not just as a cover up, but to increase my street cred. LOL)

Would " WILD MAMA- You can't touch this!" be a good starting tat and then you move on from There?

Ha! I think going through all this already gives you street cred...

I’m almost 3 weeks post op and my glue is starting to come off. Any recommendations on scar cream/ oil brands? Also, can I start this as soon as the glue falls off?
Take a Vitamin E capsule and open it and rub in the oil to incisions as they begin to heal do it everyday.
