Question: Hello,

I've had a lip scar from a split lip for about 9 years. I never had stitches but probably should have. It looks like a lump in some light and bothers me. Do I just deal with it our are there any simple procedures to reduce it's appearance?

Thanks

Brief Answer:
Microneedling sessions or laser treatment

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic,

I have reviewed the attached photographs.

You need to go for some procedures like micro-needling sessions or laser treatment for reduction of this scar.

Multiple sittings wil be required every 3-4 weeks.
This will lighten the scar.

Let me know if I could assist you further.

Regards
Dr Asmeet

Will these sessions be effective if the scar is already lighter than the surrounding skin? Would microneedling lessen the bump any?

Thank you

Tightening the Tummy Iam 51 years old and weigh 77kgs.Recently I have lost 6 kgs and my weight stabilized at 77 kgs which works out to a BMI of 25 as my height is 5’10”.I maintain regular exercise -aerobics,strength training,abdominal exercises and evening walk of 4 kms.I eat selectively without oil,less Non veg,less sweets,more fruit and water ,steamed vegetables,sprouts,Almonds(4 nos) and 1 egg white.When I go to gym I take whey protein of 30 gms. My problem is with my stomach muscles.Inspite of my exercise and moderate food habits I have a stomach of 36 inches.When I sit down I have to adjust my belt by changing the hole.When I wear underwear I feel very tight in abdominal area.Thats why I stopped wearing underwaear except when I exercise. I consulted a specialist who is into weight loss surgery like gastric band and sleeve who initially suggested to go for liposuction.When I requested for a non surgical solution he offered me a complimentary session on Radio frequency Tripolar machine.He promised that I will loose 2 inches over 6 sittings.For each sitting there should be a gap of 2 weeks.He says the skin also will be tightened apart from fat reduction in the tissues.I have also read that this can be done by Ultrasound Lipolysis and Zerona laser treatments. Please suggest me which is ideal for reducing my stomach sag.
