I had two stomas once (yeah, I'm such a lucky gal) and the other one was reversed in July 2009. The scar is barely visible now and the skin is soft. Yours will get that way over time. :-)

It's been about 2 years since my old one was closed and it still looks indented (real attractive :P), but it's soft now and skin colored.
