When I was researching this procedure I was curious about what the incisions and scarring might look like. I wasn't able to find a lot of examples online.

I took a picture of my incisions two days after surgery. I still have the steri-strips, and I'll post an update again once they come off, but in the mean time I thought it might be good to see if anyone else has pictures to share.

Here's mine the second day after surgery. Not sure why I only had 4 incisions, seems like most everyone else has 5:

Mine don't really show anymore, too hairy, and I've had 4 different abdominal surgeries, so mine would just confuse everyone anyhow.

Yours are in a bit different location than mine were though. Mine were just above navel, 2 on right side one time and 2 on left one time(just under ribs) and one somewhere near the mid line. Then the open redo was from my sternum to navel.

Never thought about showing the locations before. Should be a lot easier for others to understand seeing them verses trying to imagine where they are. Interested to see the different locations used by different surgeons.

Take care,
