    Default Post op scar photos? (repost)

    Hi guys, (I posted this in the before surgery forum too but thought its more appropriate here)
    I've been thinking about about the cosmetics of the surgery and wanted to see how the scars are healing for you guys. Is anyone brave enough to post their scar photos and let me know how far post op the photos were taken? The longer the better. I wanna get a good idea of how they will look for example 6 months, 1 year 2 years post op. but i'd also be happy to see 1 week post op so please share, if you're brave enough.

    Way less noticeable in general than the HUGE belly before surgery! I'm 3 weeks out and all of my incisions are healed to white marks. I can't imagine them being too bad in six months or so.

    My scars are larger and still very, very pink. My gallbladder scars are nearly invisible and whitish...I am hoping that eventually they will fade, but I am already 7 months out. I may post some current pics for you when I think about it and am in front of a mirror!
    IMAG0080.jpg

    As promised, here is a photo of my scars. I am a bit over 7 months out. You will notice that I still have quite a bit of belly fat to lose, but currently I have lost 108 pounds, and weight 171. Here's a bit of bravery on my part, this isn't easy!

    I thought about posting mine (almost 3 months out) but they look very similar to Ishepler, so there is no need Lucky me! Not that I was nervous or anything... cough...

    Mine look the same too and I'm about 4.5 months out. The big incision above the belly is the most noticable for me

    You upload them to an online site (like photobucket for instance) and then you can link them here

    You could upload the image to a gallery on here and then link to it. That's really the only other way I know of. It uses alot of space when you have attachments uploaded directly to the forums so alot of BB's don't do it, or have a cap on how much you can store on the site. It really slows down things too in my experience. This is why hosting on an outside provider and then just linking to it is preferred.
