Re: Minimal Incision Bunion Surgery
I'm not from Canada, nor do I know about minimal incision surgery, but I had bunionectomies with "regular" incisions about a year and a half ago and the scars are almost totally invisible now. The doctor had said that he might have to cut on the tops of my toes but he was able to do side cuts, so even before the scars disappeared, they were not conspicuous. My skin does tend to heal well, so I'm sure that everyone's experience is not as good, but I wouldn't worry about scarring unless you usually have problems with it. I did use Mederma, an over-the-counter product that is supposed to minimize scarring; I'm not sure how much it helped. Good luck!
