hello.Thanks for the encouragement it's been almost ten months since i took my fibroadenoma surgery.the scar is still there but it's getting better.
I had my fibroadenoma surgery twice when i was 13 and 14,its been 7 years still the scars havent faded,the scar from the first surgery vanished within a year.I have two scars from the second surgery they havent faded till now,which disturbs me whenever i look i it brigs back sad memorie.
Is there any way to remove it other than laser therapy etc.?
after an operation I had quite a scar but using dermelastic serum continually moisturised and made the scar reduce considerably. I will continue to use it with the hope the scar nearly disappears. Certainly worth a try a very product.
Hard to remember exactly with the fibroadenoma because it was a few years ago. However it was definitely a few weeks after removing the dressing. As you say though people have different healing times and incisions would be different too (mine was more to the side) so hard to know what is 'normal'. As Sharbansh says, if you are worried a GP's practice nurse could probably check it for you. Hope it starts to look better soon.
I was told to use Bio-Oil to minimise scarring. Mine was mx rather than fibroadenoma so obviously rather bigger scar and it is never going to disappear but the Bio-Oil did seem to help to settle it all down. If you see a nurse you could check if it would be OK to use with the waterproof glue (I had dissolving stitches). A few years ago I did have a fibroadenoma removed - was then told to use baby oil on the scar. The Bio-Oil is better! The scar I had post fibroadenoma was not very noticeable once it had all settled down - so hope you will find that yours is OK after a few weeks.
I had small one fibroadenoma (1.5cmx2cm) removed 2 and half weeks ago. The doctor made an 2cm incision along the edge of my areola to minimise the visibility of the scar, and used dissolvable stitches and a glue dressing on top to close the wound. She told me that the scar would be just a thin line and would be very unnoticeable after it heals. My skin tends to heal very well in the past when i hurt myself or was cut, but I've never had a surgery before. I just took off the glue dressing yesterday (the doctor suggested taking it off after 2-3 weeks) so my areola is all exposed right now. I haven't had an infection, fever, or much pain after the surgery, so I assume I've been healing quite OK. However, after I took off the dressing, the scar was quite noticeable. It's quite different from what the doctor described to me in the beginning as a thin line that's not easily noticeable. Right now, it feel very hard and bumpy to touch, and the thin line is dented inwards in some parts (but flat on other parts). It looks like the skin was pulled downwards a bit around the incission when it's stitched together. It almost looks like the skin hasn't healed together, but I'm pretty sure it's not bleeding and the top later of skin has formed well closed, it's just dented inwards.
I'm wondering if the doctor has stitched it finely enough, or if her technique was not so great. Or if it just looks like this because it'll takes some more time for the skin to flatten up. Can anyone please offer some insights on how you've healed? How long does it usually take for the scar to fade, or will it ever fade?
Thank you so much for reading my post, and I'm really looking forward to getting some feedback from you! (quite nervous right now as I don't want such a noticeable scar on me... plus I was told quite the opposite before the surgery...)
