post-op toes surgery

I had surgery last year on my toes, but I am left with the ugly scars on my toes. I would love to wear pretty scandals for the summer but I'm ashamed. Is the anything I can do to remove the scaring on my toes?


Thank you

Re: post-op toes surgery

Are they keloid or just regular scars? If regular, have you tried Mederma or vitamin E oil?

If your scars are darker than the rest of your skin you can see your dermatologist and get Tri-luma cream. I had scarring on my knees and it worked like a treat. Took about 6 weeks to get back to my normal skin color though
