  • It would depend on what proceedure they are doing. I had ACL replacement and just have a tiny little scar below my knee. i have a friend that had Bariatric surgery that way. Piece of cake! Use a bit of Vitamin E oil after to help diminish the scaring.

  • It is going through my belly button to check for scar tissue/endometriosis

  • I had this procedure done also to check for endo, many of years ago- things may have changed since then but, they did go through the belly button- slight scar, not visible unless you are looking for it. I did get alot of scar tissue that is located down near the pubic area, off to the right side.
    You will need to take pain meds. Like with any surgical procedure there will be some discomfort for the next week or so, just stick on your meds and eat with them or you will get deathly sick. I hope all goes well- you'll be fine!
