    Scarring is by far the patient’s most dreaded predicament in any plastic surgery procedure. While the scalpel, cannula, and injections give their own share of terror, most patients are afraid of the unsightly scars that might appear permanently after surgery.

    Thankfully, modern medical techniques have matured through the years. Plastic surgeons are now able to control scarring to a point where patients can wear scanty clothing without worrying about surgical scars peeking. This good news would have not have been possible without the hard work of certain individuals who longed to bring in helpful developments in modern plastic surgery.

    One of them is Dr. Hoang Do, an aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon. Featured in The Wave Magazine, Dr. Do has been specializing in minimal scar breast surgery, a technique that allows patients to wear a low-cut dress or a tank top without revealing scars, for more than four years now.

    Dr. Do also performs aesthetic procedures aside from the reconstructive surgery he has been doing such as breast reconstruction and bone reconstruction. Procedures such as facelift, brow lift, eyelift, nose surgery, chin and cheek enhancements and Botox are among those that he has been doing all these years.

    Dr. Do recommends anyone considering plastic surgery to choose their physicians carefully.

    According to Dr. Do, anyone considering aesthetic or reconstructive surgery should ensure the doctor is qualified. “Ask the doctor or his staff where he performs surgery or if he has any affiliation with a hospital or surgery center,” he says. Also check online or with the Medical Board of California to see which field the doctor is in. “If you are going to get plastic surgery and the doctor doesn’t have any affiliation or privileges with a hospital or surgery center, you should be alarmed.”

    Not only that, Dr. Do always makes it a point to look into the patient’s best interest all the time, which should always be the case with all plastic surgeons.

    You can check this site for you to understand scarring much better. To remove (or at least improve the appearance of) scars surgically, scar revision surgery has to be done.

    here's a couple links for more serious scars: http://www.plasticsurgery.org/public_education/procedures/ScarRevision.cfm

    less invasive options: laser treatments, vitamin E creams or "including plenty of vitamin E in a diet from sources such as wheat germ, nuts, vegetable oils, eggs and green vegetables", cocoa butter, dermabrasion, steroid injections.

    I have a question about scarring (though not about breast surgery). I have a best friend who had a gall bladder operation-- she's a beautiful girl, but the scars aren't fading, and she's stuck in unseemly one-piece bathing suits. Can you post about getting rid of scars? I understand if it has to tie into plastic surgery. Or you can just answer me on here; I'll keep checking back. Thanks!
