After surgery on the thighs, will scars stay in the area where skin tissue was taken up?

Q:

I want to know if I have surgery on my thighs and skin tissue has been taken from that area, will scars stay in the area forever or will I get my normal skin layer back in time?

A:

If you have surgery there are scars. Scars do not go away, they mature with time and everyone scars a bit differently. There are many things that can be done to reduce scarring at the time and after your surgery. Often with a thigh lift your surgeon will position the incision or scar in an area where you wear clothing like your underwear. Hope this is of assistance.

Best,
