Hi Rob,
Thanks for reaching out!
I'm doing lipoma surgery every year. Got a lot of scars on my body.
My surgeon told me to use contractubex gel for scars (which didn't do much to my observation) and after the last surgery he told me to try dermatix since it's more potent. I'm also doing laser treatment with him but honestly my scars are still pretty visible.

I would like to hear your opinion on how to best treat the scars or surgical removal of lipomas.
