Hi,

You seem to have hypertrophic scars at the site of operation. There may be no symptom except cosmetic disability. I understand your concern for the problem. You may consult eithe dermatologist or plastic surgeon. I generally give intradermal triamcinolone injection at the site at regular interval of months. I also advise combined gel of dimethicone and ascorbyltetraisopalmitate like OPEXA GEL to apply on the lesions twice a day for few months. And to take vitamin C,vitamin E and vitamin A for long time in proper dose. You take treatment under observation of expert doctor. I hope this would help you.

Thanks.
