I've been asked about my scar care regimen, so to clarify, I did no scar care beyond the initial Kelocote and cocoa butter for the first few months, keeping the scars out of the sun for a full year, and applying sunscreen religiously to them every time I do go out in the sun. And my body does not scar well. The healing and results you see are just the result of time and general looking after my health. And, of course, my excellent surgeon.

Shortly after the 12-year pics were taken, I started applying lotion to my scars daily. I used a lotion that contained alpha hydroxy acids, because I'd heard they reduced hyperpigmentation in scar tissue and I was curious. I found that it didn't seem to affect the hyperpigmentation at all, but it did soften my scars quite a bit, so I've continued using it.

These photos were taken at a high resolution and may be slower to load.
