Went back to the plastic surgeon’s office today to get my stitches out. Very quick and virtually painless. Just keep it clean and dry for a week, then firmly massage vitamin E or Mederma into the scar to break it up. He wants to see me in three months, and then we’ll talk about dermabrasion to get the rest of the smaller scars.
It looks better than I expected! Maybe this plastic surgery thing IS for me, after all!
