How Can I Get Rid of an Ugly Scar?

By    |   Tuesday, 15 July 2014 12:15 PM

Question: I had a hysterectomy two years ago and the doctor that did it left me with an ugly long scar. I there anything I can do to get rid of it? 
Dr. Hibberd's answer:

Postsurgical scars can often be reduced or eliminated by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
Sometimes a scar can be shrunk by a local steroid injection. Topical applications of can also help reduce the appearance of unsightly scars. But be aware: Nonprescription topical treatments are often ineffective and there are no oral agents that will fade scars.
