QOTD: will I have scars after band surgery?


Some people scar more easily than others, in that their scars are more noticeable or take longer to fade, and some people develop keloids (overgrowth of scar tissue).

I had 5 incisions from my band surgery, and can only see 1 of them now - my port incision, which you can see on the righthand side of this photo, which was taken 11 months after my surgery. The other scar (north of my belly button) is from a mole removal that was done a few months before the photo was taken.
The other thing this photo shows you is that you may have excess skin (or flab, in my case) even after you reach your goal weight.
