Lower Body Lift
Body Lift

I havn't had surgery yet, it's scheduled on Nov. 4. My main concern is that I've heard that the incision may not heal properly over other scars or stretch marks. That the scar would be wider or may not heal at all!! I've got very wide thin skinned stretch marks and worry that I won't heal property or at all. Is there anything I can do to help the healing or prevent the scarring from being worse in those areas? Also, I've had weight loss surgery (lap band) and my surgeon has to relocate my port. Since my PS isn't a bariatric surgeon, should I have my bariatric surgeon do this before my body lift?
