Thanks, @rrowner2. I’m also tagging @thull @johnbishop @jmjlove since they’ve mentioned incision scars recently; perhaps they can share some tips.

What I found that helps with the scars is massage when it has healed enough to be comfortable, keeping it moisturized, I use a lotion that has vitamin E in it, also putting Mederma on it, which is a gel for scars. Also important to put sunscreen on it if it will be exposed to the suns rays. I hope this helps!
