Weight loss and scars

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Just wondering what your thoughts are on scarring of the face, be it mild or deep, if you're beginning to get into an exercise routine. Does losing weight make scars on the face more noticeable or less? I would think that it is more since if your face was fatter before, now with less fat, the scars will be less stretched and more pronounced. Or maybe if the skin is tighter and more taunt from losing weight, the scar will be less noticeable?

ChristPunchers, I would say it depends a lot on your age and the amount of weight you have to lose. Generally your scar will probably worsen, but your health will improve so that is an easy choice.
