I went to see the plastic surgeon on Saturday and he is pretty happy with the progress of my healing scar revision incision. What struck me most was the fact that he said “I’m happy for you”. Yes. And I’m happy too. The scar, simply put, is a million times better than pre-revision.
I think applying the silicone strip too early may have contributed to the bottom getting all yucky. I don’t think it was closed/healed enough, and therefore not ready for the strips as the instructions do state that the wound should be closed before putting the strips on. I thought it was, but clearly I was wrong. So we’re going to wait a bit this time.
