Here are some recent ones of mine. The first one is 4 days post op. The second is 4 weeks post op. There are three little incisions (in the second pic the top one is covered by my shirt), and one larger one.

Hi folks, I've never posted in this thread before. If you are someone who is looking around

and trying to find out about lap band surgery and wondering about the scars, well, mine

turned out really fine. I have five and two are very hard to see.

The two hardest to see is the tiny one way at the top near my breast bone in the middle

and another way on my left side.

I am four months out and I have lost 44 lbs. since surgery. :biggrin2:

I can't believe how some of you bruised, it looks so painful, and some of the surgery points look incredibly painful as well but then again some don't. It's funny because about a week ago I started thinking about how the surgeon would close the surgery point eg glue, staples, stitches and that night I had a dream that I had the band and it was a big 2 inch cut and it was still open and being held together by only one stitch - needless to say I woke up with a fright and now I'm paranoid and hoping that the surgeon uses glue lol but I'll definetly be posting pics once I have surgery =) Also for people whose scars are still red and bruised try bio oil http://www.bio-oil.info/en/global_availability/index its available in america and I got it when I had a lung biopsy last june, put it on every day after a shower and before I go to bed - I'm usually the worlds worst healer but it's definetly helped and also it's good for stretch marks - so another bonus!

here is my most recent picture of the incisions and scars. I am now 3 weeks post band (scars are only 21 days old). And..... I got out my sexy red thong and bra for you guys!!

I cannot see that you needed a band in the first place?

So this is the day after my surgery and I have no bruising. The yellow stuff on my skin is sticky iodine for surgery prep. I think my scars are going to heal really well. The doctor said I can start using maderma in 15 days.smallscar.jpg
