Hello guys, I hope you are all well, I have self harm scars around my hips and few on my arm. One inparticular looks horrible and although some people have openly admitted they didn't think it was a self harm scar (they said it looked like a burn) I still hate it. In work i have a short sleeve top and its visible. I notice people looking at it. I mentioned it maybe a year ago? when I was at a GP app and she said i can have surgery to remove it (but would still be left with a scar) has anyone had this? and if so, how was it?

Thanks

I to have these on my lower arm if anybody would comment with serious advice I would appreciate as I am embarrassed to ask Doctor etc and keep my lower arms covered

I've had so many plastic surgeries that I have scars around my hips, waist, chest and even between my legs. I have decided that since the scars will always be kind of visible to others I will cover them with tattoos. I think that's the best solution but first the wounds must heal completely.
