  • have you been to your doc for a check up lately? I ask because I had mine 4 1/2 weeks ago and it is still red and looking gross and I had it checked out today and it's infected... :( You might want to get it looked at if your doc hasn't checked it lately.

  • I had mine almost 5 months ago, and it is getting better. It is still red on the one side where I had a slight infection. I think people heal differently, some slower than others. Unless you have an infection, you just have to be patient, and it will get better. But it will never go away completely.

  • I had mine 6 months ago and it is a light pink color now. Unfortunately I have a huge pouch of fat that practically slumps over it so it can really be seen anyway LOL. It's still kind of numb when I touch it!

  • My daughter will be 3 in October. My scar isn't noticeable anymore. There will always be that indentation there because of the cut and you can see the line visibly but that's it.

  • It depends on a lot of things. How fair you are plays a role. How have you scarred in the past? Everyone scars differently. I'm very fair and scar badly. My baby is 13 months old and my scar looks the same as it did when he was 3 months old. I don't mind because it is so low. If you're fair, then the redness will most likely last for months, fade to purple, and then finally white as it gets closer to a year post surgery.
